Abstract

This chapter develops the argument that the priority in the ongoing negotiations of a new international legally binding instrument (ILBI) on marine biodiversity of areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ) should be framing clear international cooperation obligations on the co-production of ocean knowledge, in order to support transformative conservation and sustainable use of BBNJ.

Keywords: ocean, biodiversity, human rights, science, traditional knowledge
