ANNOUNCEMENT

The International Seabed Authority (ISA) has launched a consultation with its members and particularly developing States, to identify their national capacity development priorities as they relate to the role and responsibilities given to ISA by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and the 1994 Agreement.

As indicated in the High-Level Action Plan relating to the implementation of the ISA Strategic Plan for 2019-2023, the ISA Secretariat is required to “assist developing States, in particular geographically disadvantaged States, small island developing States, least developed countries and landlocked developing countries, in identifying their needs” by 2020.

In line with the High-Level Action Plan for 2019-2023 and the key findings of the Capacity development, resources and needs assessment workshop organized by ISA in Kingston, Jamaica, from 10 to 12 February 2020, the Secretariat is therefore kindly requesting ISA members, specifically developing States, to complete the online survey by 29 May 2020https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/2PD5Y8C

Survey results will be collated and presented by the ISA Secretary-General to the Assembly at the 26th session in July 2020.
