InforMEA is developing a new course on Sustainable Development Goal 16. The course has incorporated the recommendations of the Environmental Rule of Law report, with an emphasis on access to information, public participation, and access to justice. The first of the five course-lesson is ready, and can be accessed in the following link. The full course will be launched on 5 June for World Environment Day. Please visit the InforMEA portal to learn more about Multilateral Environmental Agreements, and access the free training courses.
InforMEA is also planning to soon launch a comprehensive new course on Marine Biological Diversity of Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (BBNJ), which has been developed in close cooperation with the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea. The course provides an introduction to the issues and history of the BBNJ process, a detailed synopsis of the applicable legal framework, and an overview of the current process to develop an International Legally Binding Agreement under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). Please see the Lesson 1 here.
