Briefing: Biodiversity Plan and BBNJ Agreement

Find out more about the synergies between the High Seas Treaty and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) on Capacity building and the transfer of marine technology in this fascinating new briefing paper, published by Post-2020 and co-authored by Nathalie Rey and Daniel Kachelriess of the High Seas Alliance along with Julia Schütz-Veiga of the NOVA IPSI Knowledge Centre/The Nippon Foundation Ocean Voices Programme.

Marine life does not recognize boundaries. promoting synergies between relevant international bodies – such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the new High Seas Treaty – is essential to securing 30% protection of all seas by 2030, both within and beyond national waters. Tapping into the CBD’s thirty years of experience, as well as its scientific expertise, will be of huge value for the High Seas  Treaty as member states prepare for its swift entry into force and implementation.
