Scientific InterGovernmental Organisations (ICES, CIESM, OSPAR) covering the north Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Black Sea met in Lisbon in mid September at the invitation of the United Nations Division of Ocean Affairs. This meeting - the first in a series of five regional workshops - did open the 2nd cycle of the UN Regular Process for Global Assessment of the State of the Marine Environment, searching to improve the indicators to be used in the global reporting on the world Ocean. CIESM was represented by Dr Laura Giuliano (Director of Science) and Dr Frederic Briand seen here in conversation with the UN Joint Coordinators Drs Alan Simcok and Renison Ruwa, together with Dr Maria Bebianno of the Pool of Experts.
