SCELG awarded consultancy in trade of illegally harvested fisheries products

SCELG co-director, Prof Elisa Morgera and SCELG member, Dr Daniela Diz, were awarded a consultancy from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) to produce a study on the legislative tools and related measures to fight against the trade of illegally harvested fisheries products. The study will entail a comparative analysis of legislative practices and tools that support or complement market-related measures regarding illegal fisheries products, with options and guidelines for enhancing legislation. The study aims to enhance the knowledge and capacities of governments, and to improve their legal and governance frameworks by creating conditions for the sustainable management of fisheries and the achievement of relevant Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Practice-Led Teaching

Prof Elisa Morgera and Dr Daniela Diz are the Co-Directors of the LLM in Law of the Sea, Sustainable Development and International Law.
