SCELG awarded follow-up consultancy from the UN Convention on Biological Diversity

June 2017: The Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) has been awarded a new consultancy from the Secretariat of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to support the integrated implementation of the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety at the national level.

Professor Elisa Morgera (SCELG Director), Miranda Geelhoed (PhD Fellow) and Elsa Tsioumani (BENELEX Research Fellow) recently carried out a consultancy for the CBD Secretariat to develop two online capacity-building tools to support the mainstreaming of biosafety into national legal frameworks. The new consultancy contract will provide an opportunity to translate these tools in French and Spanish, as well as to develop two new tools, to develop a national strategy for biosafety mainstreaming, and to support the national implementation of the Supplementary Protocol on Liability and Redress to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety.

Prof Morgera is the Director of the LLM Global Environmental Law and Governance.
