Rio+20: Some good progress being made on Oceans

Rio+20 (16/06/2012) – Jacqueline Alder, Coordinator of the Marine Ecosystems Programme, UNEP, talks to Pavilion TV about the progress that has so far been made on the oceans. Being titled the ‘Summit of the Oceans’ she says member states are making progress on the oceans discussions but still have a few sticking points – mainly on fisheries and the biodiversity management beyond areas of national jurisdiction.

She says UNEP will be listening closely to the talks, as the final language agreed upon will have a huge impact on the work they will be doing in the future and says they are here to remind people that oceans are life.
