Programme

15 December High Seas Treaty Dialogue

[20:30 SGT / 13:30 CET / 07:30 EST]

Moderated by Gabriele Goettsche-Wanli 

The 15 December dialogue will focus on:

The process for adoption and entry into force of the agreement, including lessons learned and best practices. The dialogue will draw on recent experiences from those involved in other processes. How many parties does the BBNJ agreement need to enter into force?

After the text is agreed and adopted, what do Member States need to do in the intersessional period to advance the entry into force of the agreement? What do Member States need to do to prepare for the post-adoption period?
