Africa’s will to pursue deep seabed mining has been uncertain, but interest in the subject is growing. When the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea was adopted, Africa played an active role in developing the deep seabed mining regime.

African countries must implement a clear action plan to transform the ideas presented in African blue economy instruments into action.
