United Nations, Sep 20 (Prensa Latina) Costa Rica signed the Framework Agreement of the UN Convention on the right to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction.

As part of the agenda of the Central American nation in the High Level Week of the United Nations (UN) in its 78th session, Costa Rica was the second country to sign the agreement, adopted on June 19, after nearly 20 years of negotiations. During that time, this nation advocated for an ambitious, robust and science-based document, a call it will maintain during the implementation of the agreement.

The period for States to sign began on Wednesday and will run for two years, until September 20, 2025. Before Costa Rica, Micronesia signed, and for the agreement to enter into force, 60 countries must deposit the instrument of ratification.

Its adoption is a significant milestone to save the ocean and on the road to its entry into force, Costa Rica reiterates the importance of mobilizing the necessary funds in order to provide a solid basis for its implementation.
