Headline: Conserving the Global Ocean: Initial Indications for Effective Area-based Management Tools on the High Seas

Biodiversity in the deep and distant waters of marine areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABNJ) provide critical ecosystem services that are increasingly threatened by growing exploitation of marine resources, climate change, ocean acidification, and pollution. In 2017, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) initiated negotiations for the development of an international legally binding instrument (ILBI) on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in ABNJ. This instrument will be based on a package of elements, one of which being area-based management tools (ABMTs) including marine protected areas (MPAs). This report provides some initial indications as to how the international community can make pragmatic moves to build on existing governance frameworks, consolidate progress made in the negotiations to date, and lay a foundation for the effective deployment of ABMTs and MPAs.
