The Extraordinary Meeting of the Parties to the Pelagos Agreement was held on February 9, 2018, at the Rainier III Auditorium in Monaco, chaired by Cyril Gomez, Director General of the Department of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development.
The event was attended by representatives of the three member countries – France, Italy and Monaco – as well as observers.
The meeting agreed to financial activities of the last three years, the report of the expenditures in 2017 and approved the programme for 2018 and 2019.
Among the resolutions adopted, a number related to the standardisation of research methods on marine mammal populations in the Pelagos Sanctuary – including satellite telemetry – as well as the terms of reference for assessing the impacts of plastics on marine mammals and for the identification of plastic accumulation in the Sanctuary.
The Parties decided to continue to strengthen cooperation with the municipalities and marine protected areas within the Pelagos Sanctuary as well as with the Marine Mammal Sanctuaries beyond them.
An international workshop bringing together the different actors for the marine environment will also be held at the end of 2018, in Italy, to discuss possible solutions to reduce the risk of collisions between ships and large cetaceans.
As the world’s premier luxury Yacht Show opened on Wednesday, September 27, in Monaco’s Port Hercule under slightly cloudy skies, security was at a premium. While in previous years a quick look at a badge was enough, this year personal searches are more thorough at all 16 entry points.
Mindful of the fact that security must be strong on all sides, the maritime authorities have insisted on that specific identification for all vessels must be presented during the Show.
In addition, a steel rope across the harbour entrance acts as a deterrent to any seaborne intrusion. All entrances and exits will be closed from 01:00 until 07:00 in the morning up until the end of the Show on Saturday, September 30.
The total value of yachts attending the Show amounts to 4.5 billion euros, and over 60 percent of the yachts at anchor outside Port Hercule are currently for sale, according to yachhtharbour.com.
Informa, the owner of the Monaco Yacht Show, has acquired five major US yacht shows during 2017, according to yachhtharbour.com.
