On Thursday, 30 March, delegates to the third session of the Preparatory Committee on the elements of a draft text of an international legally binding instrument on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction (PrepCom 3) reconvened in the informal working group on environmental impact assessments (EIAs). The working group met throughout the day, focusing on triggers, process and governance, including questions of costs, transparency, consultations, monitoring and review. Delegates also discussed strategic environmental assessments and capacity building.
