About the product

This expert report provides a concise global overview of the developments over the last decade within the area of focus of the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (GPA). The report identifies that countries have made considerable progress in developing and implementing appropriate policy responses at national, regional and international levels.
