A FIELD roundtable discussion on “A new governance body for the oceans? Focus on MPAs”  will be held at FIELD’s offices in London on 12 January 2012 (2.30pm – 5pm).

The FIELD roundtable “A new governance body for the oceans? Focus on MPAs” follows from a previous roundtable on “new rules for the oceans” held in July 2011 where the subject was the recent work of the UN Working Group on marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction.

This second roundtable will be an opportunity to continue discussions on UN developments, with a particular focus on the potential for a new global governing body dealing with marine protected areas in areas beyond national jurisdiction. This includes the role that a new global body may play in relation to the identification, designation and management of marine protected areas. These issues will be very relevant to continued discussions of the Working Group.

The event will be informal and it will be held under the Chatham House Rule of non-attribution. A more detailed agenda will follow nearer the time.

Please let anna.karklina@field.org.uk or Steve Cole (colemarinelaw@gmail.com) know if you can make it.

Best wishes,

Joy Hyvarinen
Executive Director
