The problems of the ocean are interlinked and must be addressed in a holistic manner. This is what Juergen Mueller, Head of Unit in charge of communication activities of DG Mare at the European Commission, believes to be the correct approach when dealing with the ocean.
A triple planetary crisis caused by climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution affects the health, productivity and long-term resilience of the ocean.
