U.N. General Assembly

The General Assembly is made up of 193 members and is the main representative and policymaking organ of the global organization. Each year, the General Assembly and its committees consider resolutions relating to oceans and the Law of the Sea, sustainable fisheries, and other issues concerning the conservation of marine biodiversity and ecosystems. These resolutions help to crystallize countries’ responsibilities in conserving the oceans. Additionally, the General Assembly oversees processes that encourage multilateral discussions on ocean issues.
