UN Starts Treaty Negotiation Process to Protect High Seas Marine Biodiversity

Date: 28th March 2016

From March 28 through April 8, world governments will gather at United Nations headquarters in New York City to develop elements of a new marine biodiversity treaty for the high seas and ocean areas beyond national borders.  The PrepCom meeting is the first of four over the next two years, toward the recommendation of a formal intergovernmental conference in 2018.
