About the event
Expert panel on IUCN Resolution 122 for the protection of deep-ocean ecosystems and biodiversity through a moratorium on deep seabed mining (adopted in September 2021). In preparation for CBD COP15, the upcoming CBD SBSTTA meeting and other DSM-related events in 2022, the discussion will cover the latest updates on the science, legal context, governance, social license, and alternatives for a decarbonised future as they relate to the debate around deep seabed mining. We anticipate 40 minutes of presentation followed by Q&A and discussion.
