The workshop has two main objectives:
- Develop detailed terms of reference for necessary preparation work for a second workshop on unacceptable interactions – based on AC22/Doc.4.1.c
- Develop a roadmap and terms of reference for a joint ASCOBANS and ACCOBAMS bycatch working group (as mandated by ASCOBANS Res. 8.2 and ACCOBAMS Res. 6.5) and its relationship to the new IWC bycatch initiative
Participation is by invitation only. The workshop will take place at the UN Campus in Bonn. More information will follow in due course.
