North-East Atlantic Environment Strategy 2030

The full NEAES text can be found in OSPAR Agreement 2021-01

The North-East Atlantic Environment Strategy (NEAES) 2030 was adopted on 1 October 2021 in Cascais, Portugal. This was supported by a high-level review of OSPAR's previous strategy for the decade 2010-2030.

Contracting Parties developed an implementation plan to support work to put the Strategy into effect. The plan is a living document, setting out specific actions and tasks to achieve the NEAES objectives and will be used by OSPAR to record and assess progress with implementation of the Strategy. In 2023 OSPAR published a progress report on the implementation of the NEAES 2030.
