33rd Meeting of States Parties to UNCLOS

The 33rd Meeting of the States Parties to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) will receive reports from the representatives of the three bodies established by the Convention – the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), the International Seabed Authority (ISA), and the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf on their annual activities. The meeting will also consider budget and administrative matters for the financial period 2023-2024 and elections of members of the Commission.

UNCLOS governs all aspects of ocean space and maritime issues, from navigational rights, maritime limits, and marine scientific research to resource management, marine conservation, and dispute settlement. The Convention sets out the legal framework under which all activities in the oceans and seas must be carried out and serves as the basis for national, regional, and global action and cooperation in the marine sector.

The Meeting will also consider the reports of the Secretary-General on oceans and the law of the sea that were submitted to States parties pursuant to article 319 of the Convention (documents A/77/331 and A/78/67).
