Global Ocean Governance to strengthen national ocean commitments

Monday December 9, 2019 – 1.45 pm to 2.45 pm (Room 1)

As part of COP 25, the International Center for Comparative Environmental Law (CIDCE) based in France, the Climate and Resilience Research Center (CR2) based in Chile, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography based at the University of California San Diego, and the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs are organizing a panel conversation on global ocean governance.

The panel will address the interconnections between the law of the sea, environmental law and the challenges for ocean ecosystems in the context of climate change.

On this occasion, Emilie Gaillard, general coordinator of the Normandy Chair for Peace, made a presentation prepared with Professor Ariel GALLARDO (Chilean oceanographer) on the theme: “the time for global ocean governance has come: recognizing the rights of marine ecosystems to protect the future of the future”.

The urgent need to protect the rights of marine ecosystems is addressed. It is neither more nor less than transposing to marine ecosystems, the now well known approach of the rights of Nature.

Ms. Hiroko MURAKI GOTLIEB, also presented in partnership with the Normandy Chair for Peace and for the Ocean International Council of Environmental Law on the following topic: “Climate Change and the New High Seas Treaty”.

With her experience as an accredited observer at the various preparatory meetings, Ms. Hiroko MURAKI GOTLIEB shared with the audience the latest points of progress currently under discussion during the negotiation of this new treaty on the oceans so long awaited by the international community.
