Abstract
    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. Nevertheless, progress over the last decade needs to be sustained and strengthened in response to the growing pressures, with special attention to implementation, enforcement and environmental governance.
