An Assessment of Assessments Findings of the Group of Experts

An Assessment of Assessments Findings of the Group of ExpertsThe “Assessment of Assessments” (AoA) is a start-up phase towards a Regular Process for global reporting and assessment of the state of the marine environment that takes the WSSD decision forward. It was initiated in response to a UN General Assembly Resolution in 2005.
