    The Global Marine Governance (GMG) initiative assists United Nations specialized agencies, funds and programmes, and their member states through targeted research and capacity building to achieve conservation and sustainable use of ocean resources and biodiversity. In focusing on oceans management on a global scale, GMG undertakes integrated analyses of human uses of ocean resources, and the impacts of these activities on the structure and functioning of marine systems. GMG’s research and capacity building enables countries to achieve effective management of human activities in marine areas, aiming to reach international conservation and sustainable use targets related to oceans and coasts.
