From the report of the BBNJ Preparatory Committee, 31/07/17 :

Taking into account the various types of area-based management tools, including marine protected areas, the text would set out the process in relation to area-based management tools, including marine protected areas, and the relevant roles and responsibilities, on the basis of the approach that will be developed.

From the President's aid to discussions 25/06/18:

What would be the most appropriate process in relation to area-based management tools, including marine protected areas, in particular with respect to decision-making and institutional set up, with a view to enhancing cooperation and coordination, while avoiding undermining existing legal instruments and frameworks and the mandates of regional and sectoral bodies?

Possible approaches might include a global approach, a regional approach, a sectoral approach and a hybrid approach.

(a) For each of these possible approaches and for any other proposed approach, what would be the proposed allocation of roles and responsibilities in

relation to area-based management tools, including marine protected areas, including with respect to the identification of areas, consultation on and assessment of proposals, decision-making, implementation, and monitoring and review?

(b) What institutional arrangements would be included in the instrument to give effect to the proposed allocation of roles and responsibilities under 4.3.a above?

(c) What practical arrangements would be included in the instrument to give effect to the proposed allocation of roles and responsibilities under 4.3.a above?

(d) Would the instrument also address how the possible approaches would apply to the different types of area-based management tools?
