MATEOS


Mission requests a Voluntary Visitor Program for Aurora Mateos, a
Spanish citizen who is the main point of contact at the UNESCO
Secretariat for the IOC Advisory Body of Experts on Law of the Sea

SIPDIS
(ABE-LOS). Over the past six years, the U.S. has found that ABE-LOS
serves to reinforce U.S. policy with regard to oceans science. Both
the IOC and Mateos would benefit from greater collaboration on Law
of the Sea matters with the UN Division of Oceans Affairs and Law of
the Sea, which is located in NYC. Mateos has received full country
team approval per '03 State 173181-C.

Mission would like to provide Mateos an opportunity to meet with
counterparts in the US, through visits to US institutions involved
in managing the Marine Scientific Research regime of UNCLOS.

Program suggestions include meetings with the following:
- Department of State (OES)
- NOAA
- UN Division of Ocean Affairs
- University of Virginia, Department of Law of the Sea
- University of Delaware, Marine Policy Program (George
Parsons)
- Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute's Marine Policy Center (Andrew
Solow)

Possible dates: May - early September (up to 10 days)

UNESCO would cover transportation costs to and from the United
States. Mission requests that ECA consider covering candidate's
hotel and per diem expenses for the duration of her stay.
