    A circumpolar gap analysis technical workshop on developing systematic conservation planning for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in domains 3 (Weddell Sea), 4 (Bouvet-Maud) and 9 (Amundsen-Bellingshausen) was held in Brussels, Belgium between 11 and 14 September 2012.

    The main workshop outcomes were the aggregation of available data and the development of conservation objectives for the individual domains, which can be included in future systematic conservation planning processes.
