Chapter Summary

Ambassador Satya N. Nandan is that rare individual who deserves personal credit for real and lasting global change-change that contributes to global sustainability. As a representative of the Department of State, the author had the pleasure of working with Nandan both in the Law of the Sea negotiations and on the negotiation of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Convention (WCPFC). In those negotiations, he brought to the table and the chairman's chair a clear vision of the ways in which legal standards and requirements in the agreements at issue are formulated or reformulated to make lasting change. In the Law of the Sea Convention, he was not only key to achievement of some of the difficult compromises made in the original 1982 agreement, but also was the architect of agreement on the 1994 revisions of Part 11 to encompass free-market approach compatible with the interests of the United States.
