The Transfer of Marine Technology as Benefit-sharing

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

The UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) includes provisions on the transfer of marine technology (Part XIV) that seek to contribute to the realization of a just and equitable economic order, similarly to its provisions on marine scientific research (as discussed in a previous post). This economic order is envisaged to take into account the interests and needs of mankind as a whole, and of the special interests and needs of developing countries, in particular of coastal or land-locked countries. Against this background, this blog post will analyse UNCLOS rules on marine technology transfer as a form of benefit-sharing, discuss challenges to their implementation and identify opportunities for tackling them.
