Biodiversity in 40% of the earth’s surface is not protected – the oceans are beyond national jurisdiction. Come and discuss how law and science can work together to save ocean biodiversity.
Biodiversity in 40% of the earth’s surface is not protected – the oceans are beyond national jurisdiction. The UN is developing a treaty to conserve marine biodiversity in these areas and to allow some of these resources to be used to develop new products such as medicines which can stop resistant bacterial infections. Key goals are to permit freedom of marine scientific research and allow the sharing of any benefits that arise from commercial use of marine biodiversity. Come and discuss ways to ensure that marine science can advance whilst at the same time biodiversity is protected.
