The Enhancing Pacific Ocean Governance (EPOG) project aims to assist in the implementation of the Framework for a Pacific Oceanscape, which identifies strategic priorities and actions throughout the region to achieve sustainable development, management and conservation of the Pacific Ocean. The project’s overarching goal is to empower Pacific Island countries and territories to effectively manage marine and coastal resources for sustainable economic development and food security, while maintaining productive ecosystems and biodiversity.

The project will also support regional organisations and countries move towards a more holistic, cross-sectoral approach to ocean governance. Enhancing Pacific Ocean Governance is receiving funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Government Partnerships for Development (GPFD) program.
