The first world ocean assessment: a benefit-sharing perspective

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

On 23 December 2015, the UN General Assembly welcomed the First World Ocean Assessment (the WOA or the Assessment) and approved its summary. The Assessment analyses interactions between the many dynamics pertaining to the ocean and humans uses of the ocean with a view to supporting more effective decision-making, as well as identifying knowledge and capacity gaps. As such, the Assessment does not elaborate on pertinent legal and policy frameworks and contains very few explicit references to benefit-sharing. Nevertheless, many of its findings are potentially relevant to research on fair and equitable benefit-sharing. This blog post begins by considering the rationale and the process that led to the publication of the WOA, before discussing its findings relating to inter-State and intra-State benefit-sharing.
