A new global biodiversity framework: What place for the ocean?

Show notes

This episode takes the 2022 UN Biodiversity conference (COP 15) in Montreal, Canada, as a starting point to ask what is changing for biodiversity conservation and if we are on the right track for halting and reversing nature loss in the ocean. We are joined by Joe Appiott, coordinator of the marine, coastal and islands biodiversity programmes of work at the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and Dr Kerry Sink, Marine Program Manager and Principal Scientist at South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI). So what exactly might change with the new global biodiversity framework, and is this a step in the right direction? What about the regional perspective on biodiversity conservation in the ocean: What can experiences from South Africa teach us in going forward?
