Decision-making - Designation Process for ABMTs/MPAs
Suggestion 1: Global decision-making body[edit | edit source]
A global decision-making body could be empowered under the new instrument to identify, consult on and adopt protective measures for MPAs.
Suggestion 2: Decision-making that does not require consensus[edit | edit source]
Decision-making processes strive for consensus but do not require it.

Suggestion 3: Endorsement of MPAs established at regional level[edit | edit source]
Create mechanism for proposals for endorsement of MPAs established at the regional level (outside the framework of this agreement) to be submitted to the decision-making body for review.
Upon the entry into force of the agreement, the decision making body/COP and/or subsidiary body would promptly review existing regional MPAs with a view to endorsement, in cooperation with relevant sub-regional, regional and sectoral organizations and bodies.
Suggestion 3: Inscription on list of MPAs[edit | edit source]
MPAs adopted or endorsed pursuant to this agreement would be added to a list of internationally recognized MPAs.
