C-EENRG receives CCI grant to collaborate with UNEP, IUCN and BirdLife International in developing a draft instrument to regulate oceans biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction

C-EENRG receives CCI grant to collaborate with UNEP, IUCN and BirdLife International in developing a draft instrument to regulate oceans biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction

This project will develop a practical but progressive international conservation agenda for the protection of biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ). The conservation of BBNJ is a critical international conservation and political issue around which there is broad UN-led international consensus supporting a new protective legal instrument. However, there is limited agreement concerning the threats likely to affect BBNJ and therefore uncertainty over what measures should be included within the new legal instrument and how the legal instrument should be framed.
