LifeWatch at UN World Ocean Assessment 2

LifeWatchGreece participating to the Regular Process Workshop of the UN World Ocean Assessment 2, University of Valleta, Malta, 27-28 August, 2018.

The Regular Process was established by the United Nations General Assembly through a series of resolutions. The objective for the Regular Process is articulated in UNGA Resolution 57/141, (2005) "to improve understanding of the oceans and to develop a global mechanism for delivering science-based information to decision makers and public".

The overall objective, endorsed by the UN General Assembly in UNGA Resolution 64/71 (2009), paragraph 177, is that:

  • "The regular process under the United Nations would be recognized as the global mechanism for reviewing the state of the marine environment, including socioeconomic aspects, on a continual and systematic basis by providing regular assessments at the global and supraregional levels and an integrated view of environmental, economic and social aspects.
  • Such assessments would support informed decision-making and thus contribute to managing in a sustainable manner human activities that affect the oceans and seas, in accordance with international law, including the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and other applicable international instruments and initiatives.
  • The regular process would facilitate the identification of trends and enable appropriate responses by States and competent regional and international organizations.
  • The regular process would promote and facilitate the full participation of developing countries in all of its activities. Ecosystem approaches would be recognized as a useful framework for conducting fully integrated assessments."
