The RISE UP Network

RISE UP is a global network of over 600 groups representing civil society, foundations, businesses, small-scale fishers and Indigenous peoples, who jointly agree on common priorities, objectives and targets in the Blue Call to Action to drive collective action to protect, restore and equitably govern the ocean.
