The Geneva Graduate Institute, the Research Institute for Sustainability (RIFS Potsdam) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) are hosting an event entitled Deep Seabed Mining and the International Seabed Authority. The main objective of the proposed event is to sensitise the topic of deep seabed mining to a broader audience, including discussing the mandate and ongoing work of the ISA, alongside the many associated concerns and tensions among member states and stakeholders. This event will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art at the ISA, including the accelerated regulatory process and implications of the two-year rule at the ISA amidst growing opposition to deep seabed mining, as the deadline of July 2023 approaches. This event will take place in Geneva (Switzerland) on 3 May 2023. Further information is available here.
