Regional Platform

A Regional Platform is an adjunct to Platform 2005 that has currently the status of a position paper. It is proposed that Platform 2005 Process yield several such regionally specialized policy statements to be distributed as a part of Platform 2005 and with the same official status. This is not yet decided but it would seem to be implied by bioregional and decentralization principles - and required to resolve some practical issues regarding fishery and other regionally specific industry policy where wide variances are required nationally.

See list of position papers for any regional platform drafts that already exist.
