Great Decisions: High Seas treaty

Great Decisions: High Seas treaty

Areas of the seas beyond national jurisdiction comprise the high seas, which are facing a degradation of ecosystems due to climate change and the increase in human activities, such as shipping, overfishing, pollution, and deep-sea mining. The recently negotiated High Seas Treaty, also known as the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction treaty, will attempt to address these issues. How difficult will it be to convince nations to participate?

Join us for a discussion of "The High Seas Treaty".   A limited number of printed copies are avialable, on request, at the Pohick Library Information Desk.
