NEW: Update on ABNJ Workshop – Presentations Now Available

On 17-20 February 2015, the Global Ocean Forum and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) co-organized a Workshop on Linking Global and Regional Levels in the Management of Marine Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction at FAO headquarters in Rome, with funding support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The workshop was conducted in collaboration with the project partners of the GEF/FAO/GOF Project on Strengthening Capacity to Effectively Manage ABNJ as part of the GEF/FAO Program on Global Sustainable Fisheries Management and Biodiversity Conservation in Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (“Common Oceans,” www.commonoceans.org). Over one hundred participants convened for an open and constructive policy dialogue for supporting national, regional, and global processes in place (formal and informal) in enhancing ecosystem approaches to the management of ABNJ.
