Project ID INT0128886

This project aims to undertake a detailed diagnostic analysis which will identify science-based evidence of threats and potential impacts and will then further provide a concrete demonstration of how cooperation and associated partnerships can play a leading role in sustaining and restoring the health, productivity and resilience of an area beyond the jurisdiction of any one country but encompassed by the regime established within the mandate of the UNCLOS, consistent with the associated precautionary approach and the concepts of cooperation of States to adopt measures for the conservation and management of living resources in the area beyond national jurisdiction.
