Ninth meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended Informal Working Group to study issues relating to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity beyond areas of national jurisdiction (BBNJ)

20-23 January 2015 | UN Headquarters, New York, United States of America

Daily Web Coverage

Highlights for Tuesday, 20 January 2015
The ninth meeting of the Ad Hoc Open-ended Informal Working Group to study issues relating to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity beyond areas of national jurisdiction (BBNJ) opened on Tuesday, 20 January 2015, at the UN Headquarters in New York.

Delegates heard opening statements, addressed organizational matters and delivered general statements. In the afternoon, no delegation offered further views on the scope, parameters and feasibility of a new international instrument on BBNJ, so delegates started exchanging views on a Co-Chairs' non-paper containing draft elements for recommendation to the General Assembly, which had been circulated to national delegations in December 2014.
