August 20221. UN Members attended the Inter-governmental Conference on the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction. The meeting made significant progress in most areas towards finalising the wording of a new Treaty. The process for establishing and managing marine protected areas in the high seas has been clarified. The EU tabled a mechanism for sharing the benefits arising from marine genetic resources in a fair and equitable manner, and for enhancing marine scientific cooperation. The process and requirements for environmental impact assessments for future activities in the high seas has been elaborated. The modalities for developing capacities on ocean management have been laid down. Crucial progress has also been made on the institutional framework of the agreement, including an information exchange mechanism to foster cooperation and coordination between the Parties, and a committee on capacity building and the transfer of marine technology to strengthen support to developing countries. Although hopes for a conclusion are high, the EU, on behalf of Member States, accused Russia and China of often derailing the negotiations.
