GLISPA Friend UNEP-WCMS on protecting marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction…

UNEP WCMC 1

GLISPA Friend UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) hosted two webinars on the topics of planning and management tools, and the importance of data and metadata in area-based planning of areas beyond national jurisdiction.

These webinars are part of the 4-year ‘Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction’ project and are generally applicable although they include some specific information of relevance to the two pilot regions of the project: The Western and Central Pacific Ocean and the Western Indian Ocean.

The recordings of the webinars hosted in English can be found via the project website soon. Webinars will take place at the end of January in Spanish on the 22nd and 31st.
