In 2008, the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) adopted scientific criteria for identifying ecologically or biologically significant marine areas, known as the CBD EBSA criteria. This process supports the CBD’s key role in supporting the work of the UN General Assembly with EBSA – GOBI EBSA descriptions are kept in the CBD’s EBSA Repository, and are available online along with the official reports of the regional workshops. What is GOBI’s role in the EBSA process? GOBI has provided strategic input into each stage of the EBSA process.
