Algeria on behalf of AG, September 13th: ABMTs and MPAs – Informal Working Group

Aligns with G77 + China. Additionally:

4.5 - Monitoring and review, Dissolution of MPA: We agree with the EU’s similar comment made under 4.2. If for any reason the MPA would fall within a maritime zone under sovereignty of state, the MPA would cease to be enforced or amended accordingly. Also note that biodiversity could move (e.g. coral bleaching - “moving systems of coral reefs based on climate change”).
