IMPAC5 is the first opportunity post CBD COP15 for practitioners and decision makers to start making 30×30 real for the ocean and for the Canadian Government to enact its 2025 and 2030 marine protection targets. It is a vital opportunity to demonstrate to governments and others what is needed to make 30×30 marine protection happen and to push for the creation of new areas and mechanisms globally.

As the host country of IMPAC5, Canada has several unique opportunities to show global leadership as an ocean champion with ambitious commitments to ocean protection.

The commitments needed have been outlined in the IMPAC5 Ocean Commitments Board which will be updated during the congress as and when governments make their pledges.
