Podcast Protéger la haute mer

The ecological transition (energy or agro-ecological transition, development issues, etc.) is a subject of public policies. They are complex, sometimes underpinned by blockages or misunderstandings. At IDDRI, we propose possible solutions based on science. We put them on the democratic agenda because they are aimed at political and economic decision-makers, as well as at civil society as a whole. In these podcasts, IDDRI research fellows present their thoughts to shed light on the debate.

High seas' protection is the subject of our new episode.

Four years ago, negotiations for the protection of biodiversity on the high seas were opened at the United Nations in New York. Interrupted by the pandemic, they were able to resume in February 2022. The aim is to reach an international treaty. This new episode of Cap sur la transition looks at these international waters. What do they need to be protected from? What are the main pillars of the current negotiations? Julien Rochette, Director of IDDRI's Ocean Programme, answers Sophie Larmoyer's questions.
