International Conference on
Regional Cooperation for the Protection of the Marine Environment
15–16 January 2019, Singapore

Registration Fee: S$300 nett per person / Draft Programme

Protection of the marine environment in Southeast Asia faces particular challenges, some of which may be more effectively resolved through the cooperative efforts of states in the region. This conference will investigate cooperative efforts by the numerous existing regional bodies and possible ways forward to improve the state of the marine environment in the region.

The NUS Centre for International Law (CIL) is hosting an international conference in Singapore on 15-16 January 2019.

It will bring together experts in this area to discuss the current international and regional arrangements and possible governance models and best practices from other regions. There will also be the opportunity to discuss plastics and ship source pollution as key marine environmental issues in Southeast Asia. The particular challenges and prospects in the region will also be explored, including legal and political issues, the role of science, and financial assistance. The final discussion will centre on the way forward and prospects for enhanced cooperation within ASEAN.

The conference is being organised with the support of the K. G. Jebsen Centre for the Law of the Sea, UiT Arctic University of Norway
