This meeting builds on prior expert meetings held during the first and second rounds of negotiations in September 2018 and March 2019, respectively, that brought together participants to discuss the role and contribution of regional and sectoral ocean governance in developing and underpinning the implementation of a strong high seas agreement. This meeting will informally gather around 30 experts for a focused and solutions-oriented discussion regarding the institutional framework of a new agreement, particularly as it relates to the integration of regional and sectoral ocean governance mechanisms. The aim of the meeting is to provide concrete options for negotiators and stakeholders.
