This week, Monaco has been hosting a meeting organised by the Scientific Committee for Antarctic Research, the Prince’s government, the Monaco Scientific Centre and Monash University of Melbourne, Australia. The objective of the gathering, which brings together 22 international experts, is to identify feasible strategies and action plans that could be implemented by 2020 to strengthen the conservation and protection of biodiversity in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions. It follows the first edition of the workshop which was held in June 2015 in Monaco.
