UN Visit – March 27, 2019

Dr. Claude Perrottet and Dr. Thomas Ward of the Research Institute for the Integration of World Thought participated as observers on March 27 in the deliberations of the “Intergovernmental Conference tasked with drafting a legally-binding instrument on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biological diversity.” Participants have taken on the substantial challenges of determining protocols for usage of sea resources in ways that both reduce the risk of conflict and confrontation of competing countries in international waters and in taking necessary measures to utilize sea resources in alignments with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The overall results of deliberations have been assessed favorably by delegations who will engage in further deliberations with the intention of building consensus on what would constitute good practice guidelines and protocols by August 2019.
