This gathering is part of the STRONG High Seas Project.

The STRONG High Seas Project is a five-year project aimed at strengthening regional oceans governance for the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction. In collaboration with the Secretariat of the Permanent Commission for the South Pacific (CPPS) and the Regional Seas Program Secretariat of West and Central Africa (Abidjan Convention), the project will develop and propose targeted measures to facilitate the development of integrated and ecosystem-based management approaches for ocean governance in areas beyond national jurisdiction.
