Our Work

Through participatory dialogues in pioneering regions, the PROG engages with regional and national actors to identify priorities for achieving SDG14, and explore possible options for regionally harmonized implementation and follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda with regard to the ocean and coasts.

The PROG partners are since November 2015 implementing a project titled “Partnership for Regional Ocean Governance: Supporting SDG Implementation for Ocean and Coasts” supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The aim is to identify and promote integrated regional models for a cooperative and coordinated implementation of the SDGs for the oceans and coasts. Under this project, PROG partners collaborate to identify and promote good-practice examples in regional ocean governance that can support the implementation of SDG 14 and its underlying targets.
