TT national elected to Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf

Monday, June 19 2017

TRINIDAD and Tobago national Dr. Wanda-Lee De Landro Clarke was elected as a member of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) on Wednesday last week

De Landro Clarke is a Senior petroleum geophysicist at the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries. She is the first woman to be elected to sit on the 21-member commission.

She obtained 160 votes out of a possible 164 votes of states parties voting from all regions of the world.

In order to be elected, a candidate had to obtain at least two-thirds majority of the ballots cast. The elections took place at United Nations Headquarters in New York within the framework of the 27th Meeting of States Parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. The CLCS was established to facilitate the implementation of the convention regarding the establishment of the continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured.

De Landro Clarke will be succeeding TT national Francis Charles who has served on the commission since 2007.

The meeting also elected twenty other members from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean and Western Europe.
