NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF THE WORLD’S OCEAN IS BEYOND NATIONAL JURISDICTION – NEW LAW PROPOSED

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has published a brief pointing out that nearly two-thirds of the world’s ocean lies in areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ), which are home to unique species and ecosystems.  Negotiations are underway to create a new international instrument under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which would help close the existing ABNJ governance gap.
