9 April 2024

Ocean Futures 2030: Marine genetic resources, global benefit sharing and ocean science diplomacy

The University of Bergen with partners is organising a satellite event on ocean science diplomacy exemplified by marine genetic resources (MGRs) as part of the UN Ocean Decade Conference 2024 in Barcelona, 9 April 2024. 

This satellite event will bring together scientists, diplomats, policy makers, and other stakeholders for a lively and invigorating discussion on how ocean science diplomacy can contribute towards protecting, exploring, exploiting, and sharing the goods from the ocean as the common heritage of humankind. The discussion will be set around the ocean/climate/biodiversity nexus. Taking in recent international agreements, e.g., the biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ) agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) with the Montreal-Kunming COP15 framework for biological diversity.
