GYBN Statement on Marine- and Costal Biodiversity

Yesterday Svana (Germany) and Rioko (Japan) delivered our GYBN Statement on Marine- and Costal Biodiversity, urging parties at COP12 to accelerate the process of recognizing EBSAs. GYBN reminded delegates that marine ecosystems are coming very close to a tipping point where irreversible damages would become inevitable. Ultimately, GYBN expects parties to overcome their differences and to work on the creation of Marine Protected Areas!
