SCELG at the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)

July 2018: Dr Daniela Diz presented the key findings from a SCELG report on ecologically or biologically significant marine areas (EBSAs) commissioned by the CBD Secretariat at a side event co-organised by the Secretariat and the Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative (GOBI) on EBSAs: Scientific Achievements and Paving the Future on 2 July 2018. The side event took place on the first day of the twenty-second meeting of the CBD Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical and Technological Advice (SBSTTA-22) held in Montreal, Canada. Dr Diz focused her presentation on an overview of experiences and lessons learnt from other relevant global and regional processes with a view to inform the EBSA deliberations during the SBSTTA meeting.  

Practice-led Teaching

All post graduate teaching programmes hosted by SCELG are based on policy-relevant research and postgraduate students have an opportunity to contribute to consultancy projects with leading international partners and UN bodies. In 2018-2019, LLM students Sophia Beck-Mannagetta and Erika Solimeo were involved in SCELG research on marine biodiversity, and PhD student Mara Ntona contributed to this CBD consultancy.
