For the week of 21 March 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
IDDRI has published a new report, The long and winding road continues: Towards a new agreement on high seas governance. The report examines the background and current governance agreements of the high seas, as well as gaps in the current framework, positions of member states, and future challenges. The policy brief, Sea change: Negotiating a new agreement on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction, summarizes this report in four pages. You may download the full-text using the links above.
As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.
