Deep Sea Mining Campaign

The Deep Sea Mining (DSM) Campaign is an association of NGOs and citizens from the Pacific Islands, Australia and Canada concerned about the likely impacts of deep sea mining on marine and coastal ecosystems and communities. The goal of our campaign is to develop an active, broad-based and informed Civil Society response to Deep Sea Mining in the Pacific region and internationally

Our unique approach combines grassroots community development with regional policy interventions, and human rights and science based advocacy. Our aim is to enable Free Prior and Informed Consent from affected communities and the application of the Precautionary Principle in decision-making about deep sea mining.
