During their Fourth Meeting (Monaco 2010), the ACCOBAMS contracting Parties adopted Resolution 4.8 on the “contribution from ACCOBAMS to the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive which considers marine litter as a descriptor of good environmental status of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive particularly relevant to cetacean conservation. ACCOBAMS Contracting Parties took also note of the ongoing work within the Common Implementation Strategy of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, which includes a working group on Good Environmental Status and technical subgroups on marine litter and noise, which are relevant to cetacean conservation.
In addition, during the last Conference of the Parties to the Barcelona Convention (Paris, 8-10 February 2012), ACCOBAMS took note of the Decision IG.20/10 regarding the “Adoption of the Strategic Framework for Marine Litter management”.
