OSPAR Ministerial 2021

On 1 October 2021, OSPAR held a ministerial meeting hosted by the Government of Portugal. The meeting took place in the Palácio da Cidadela in Cascais, with some participants attending virtually.

The meeting had originally been planned for June 2020 but was postponed in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The meeting looked back at OSPAR's 2010-2020 strategy and celebrated successes. It also looked to the future with the launch of our new North-East Atlantic Environment Strategy 2030 and work towards what still needs to be done to achieve our vision of "a clean, healthy and biologically diverse North-East Atlantic, used sustainably".

The ministerial meeting was be preceded by the annual official meeting of the OSPAR Commission.
