  • Recognition of the central role of UNCLOS for the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction
  • Recognition of other existing relevant legal instruments and frameworks and relevant global, regional and sectoral bodies
  • Recognition of the need for the comprehensive global regime to better address the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction
  • Recognition of the need for assistance to enable developing countries, in particular the least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and small island developing States, to participate effectively in the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction
