Encouraging Progress for Effective Marine Protective Areas

There will be a webcast of this event

Negotiations currently underway in the United Nations are grappling with questions about how to identify, create, and enforce Marine Protected Areas (MPA) beyond national jurisdiction. At the same time, nations concerned with the ocean around Antarctica are considering proposals to create three new MPAs in that region. The Wilson Center and The Pew Charitable Trusts, with support from the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, will host an event on June 27, 2019 to encourage progress on MPAs around Antarctica and on the high seas in general.
