Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of progress towards defining outer continental shelf limits in the Asia-Pacific region. It first examines submissions on which the Commission has provided recommendations are examined. The chapter then reviews submissions pending consideration by the CLCS are reviewed. It outlines preliminary information provided by coastal states located in the Asia-Pacific region. The chapter highlights potential overlaps and omission. In particular this is achieved through a series of illustrative regional maps. The overview, coupled with the regional maps provided in the chapter, show that the coastal states of the Asia-Pacific have made a considerable number of submissions to the same areas of outer continental shelf. These areas of actual or likely overlapping outer continental shelf submissions and potential maritime disputes are indicated by greyshaded circles on the illustrative maps in the chapter.

Keywords: Asia-Pacific region; CLCS; coastal states; outer continental shelf
