unstar this property answer text <p>At the 2014 NATO Wales Summit, all Allies signed the Defence Investment Pledge (DIP) to spend 2% of GDP on defence and 20% of that on major equipment by 2024. The UK fully supports the DIP and has been clear on the need for increased defence spending in the Alliance to meet an evolving and complex security environment. The UK welcomed the Secretary General's recent announcement that non-US Allies will spend an extra $100 billion on defence over 2016-2020, and $350 billion by 2024. However, the UK remains clear that this upward trend must continue and regularly engages with Allies at all levels on this. For example, I spoke on the issue of burden sharing at the February NATO Defence Ministerial, where I welcomed progress already made and urged Allies to do more to meet their commitments.</p> more like this

We are working both domestically and internationally to achieve this goal.</p><p> </p><p>At home, we already have 314 marine protected sites, covering 24% of UK waters. In addition, we have consulted on a further 41 Marine Conservation Zones. Sites to be designated will be in place by 7 June. Around the UK Overseas Territories, including Ascension Island, we are on track to deliver over 4 million km2 of protected ocean by 2020. Overall more than 50% of all UK waters are set to be in Marine Protected Areas.</p><p> </p><p>In the 2019 Spring Statement, the UK Government announced that it is backing an Ascension Island bid to protect 100% of its offshore waters. Ascension Island plans to designate over 445,00km<sup>2</sup> of its waters as a fully protected no-take Marine Protected Area.</p><p> </p><p>Internationally, the UK is working together with key stakeholders and other countries to secure agreement to a new global 30by30 target to be included as part of the Convention on Biological Diversity post-2020 agenda for agreement at the Convention of Parties in China in 2020. Agreement of the new Implementing Agreement under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea for the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction is crucial for this target to be achieved. The UK is pushing hard for the new agreement to be completed in 2020.</p>
