Résumé

The terms of reference of the Workshop were, as described in annex II of decision VIII/24, to: (i) refine and develop a consolidated set of scientific criteria for identifying ecologically or biologically significant marine areas in need of protection, in open ocean waters and deep sea habitats, building upon existing sets of criteria used nationally, regionally and globally; (ii) compile biogeographical and ecological classification systems for delineating ocean regions and ecosystems, building on existing broad classification systems, and including more detailed subregional classification systems where they exist in a nested approach, and initiate future development by making recommendations for further work to fill gaps; and (iii) compile a consolidated set of scientific criteria for representative networks of marine protected areas, including in open ocean waters and deep-sea habitats.
