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.
Daniela teaches on the LLM in Global Environmental Law and Governance. 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.
