The current (2022-2024) Nairobi Convention programme of work (PoW) takes into account the emerging issues that need catalytic support in the Western Indian region, such as the need to support efforts to attain the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 14 on oceans, with a focus on an ecosystem approach, marine protected areas, marine litter, the impacts of ocean acidification, the development of green ports and harbours and biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction, including the application of area-based management tools in exclusive economic zones and adjacent areas.
