Highlights for Thursday, 20 June 2013
Delegates at the fourteenth meeting of the UN Open-ended Informal Consultative Process on Oceans and the Law of the Sea (Consultative Process or ICP-14) completed their work on Thursday, 20 June 2013.

In the morning, interested delegations met informally with the UN-Oceans coordinator to discuss new terms of reference for UN-Oceans. Plenary then commenced with a discussion of inter-agency cooperation and coordination focused around a presentation by UN-Oceans. Participants considered: the review of UN-Oceans' mandate and the drafting of a new terms of reference; and the Secretary-General's Ocean Compact. After a brief adjournment to provide delegates time to review the draft Co-Chairs' summary of discussions, delegates discussed the draft and suggested corrections and clarifications to best capture this week's discussions.

Co-Chair Amb. Milan J.N. Meetarbhan declared the meeting closed at 1:14pm.
