Chapter Summary

The United Nations Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea provides a wide range of services to States and intergovernmental organizations and assists Member States in their efforts to derive practical benefits from the international legal regime for the oceans. In this area, emphasis is given to developing and building up the capacities of States, including human resources, institutional infrastructures, as well as legal and technical resources. The Division implements a number of capacity building programmes ranging from award of fellowships, arranging training programmes, and providing assistance through trust funds. These have been elaborated upon in this chapter. In tune with the changing nature of support and assistance required by developing States, the Division has begun a proactive approach on emerging issues rather than to provide technical assistance upon request by States. The chapter elaborates the capacity building policy of the Division and future activities.
