Norway’s prime minister reveals plans to protect the world’s oceans


Sir Philip Campbell talks to Erna Solberg, Norway’s prime minister, about the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy.

This week, world leaders are announcing a series of pledges to protect and sustainably use the world’s oceans. The pledges form the crowning achievement of the ‘High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy’ a multinational group formed back in 2018. The panel has sought to bring together research, published in a number of so-called ‘blue papers’ and special reports by scientists, policy- and legal-experts from around the world – all with the ear of 14 participating world leaders.

Erna Solberg, the Prime Minister of Norway, co-led the Panel. In this podcast, she speaks with Springer Nature’s editor-in-chief Sir Philip Campbell about the panel’s work.
