Summary:

To address priority actions in the CEP Five-Year Work Plan and Climate Change Response Work Programme, the co-authors propose that the CEP supports the convening of a joint SCAR/CEP workshop on further developing the Antarctic protected area system. This paper presents a proposed workshop outline for Members’ consideration. The Committee is invited to consider this proposal and, if agreed, to: adopt terms of reference for the workshop; and, to support the establishment of a joint SCAR/CEP steering committee to consult with CEP Members and workshop participants to finalise and communicate the workshop arrangements.
