Abstract
    In response to the widely acknowledged need to improve protection of marine biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction, the international community has initiated a number of important processes and adopted time-bound commitments to advance biodiversity conservation and improve governance in areas beyond national jurisdiction (ABM). This paper provides a road map to the main environmental and intergovernmental processes underway, with a specific focus on high seas fisheries, deep sea fisheries, marine protected areas, and oceans governance. It will also briefly highlight some of the critical next steps needed to improve biodiversity conservation and governance for the oceans beyond national jurisdiction.
