Abstract
Indonesia is currently engaged in preparing its submission to the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) in respect of its claims to sovereign rights over continental shelf areas beyond 200 nautical miles from its archipelagic baselines, the deadline for which is 13 May 2009. The paper outlines the development of Indonesia’s ECS claim and details the current status of the submission preparations. In particular the paper explores the institutional, financial, political, legal and technical challenges faced by Indonesia in this context and assesses the strategies adopted by the Indonesian team charged with preparation of the submission to the CLCS to overcome them.
