The instruments of ratification has been submitted to the Official Depository of the Cartagena Convention in Colombia.

Currently, there are 28 United Nations Member States of which 25 are Contracting Parties to the Cartagena Convention and Oil Spills Protocol. Honduras would be welcomed to this regional cooperative effort as the 26th Contracting party, once the instruments of ratification are formally deposited and recorded in Colombia.

This significant step will enhance efforts to preserve the marine environment and resources within the Wider Caribbean Region.
