Major international negotiations on biodiversity were held in Cancun, Mexico, in December 2016. The UN Biodiversity Conference addressed a series of key environmental and societal challenges, including synthetic biology, marine biodiversity, and links between human rights and biodiversity (notably in relation to the traditional knowledge of indigenous peoples and local communities). In this video, Dr Daniela Diz, MARINE BENEFITS Research Fellow and Member of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG), shares insights into the negotiations and identifies the highlights of the UN Biodiversity Conference with regard to marine biodiversity.
