In an open letter, several Italian and international NGOs call on Italy to:

  • Take a position in favour of a moratorium or precautionary pause on deep-sea mining;
  • Attend the meeting of the Assembly of the International Seabed Authority (29 July – 2 August 2024), and support and contribute to the discussion on the agenda item (point 16.) on a proposal for a General Policy for the protection and preservation of the marine environment;
  • Ensure that the Mining Code is not adopted and that no exploitation contracts are granted by the International Seabed Authority under the current circumstances.
