1.62 As a result, marine navigation is essential to the country. However, maritime navigation produces various forms of pollution that have an impact on and harm the environment. Ship-derived oil is an important type of marine pollution. Assessing the total impact of oil on the marine environment is a complex task. While oiled seabirds are a highly respected victim of marine oil pollution, particularly in Atlantic Canada, there are many other, less obvious and harmful effects on marine animals, plants and ecosystems.

These negative side effects have led to calls for global governance processes that better protect the health policy space [30]. 1.4 Setting clear and quantifiable expectations for results, and then measuring results against those expectations, can be a major challenge in managing complex environmental issues. Nevertheless, our study of five international environmental agreements shows that the policy for an MEA is defined by the participating countries. The United Nations and the World Trade Organization are important intergovernmental organisations for the drafting and implementation of agreements. . . .
