The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) has instituted a process of regional workshops to describe Ecologically or Biologically Significant Areas (EBSAs) that has now been around the world.
David Johnson will explain the EBSA process, what it means and his involvement. The most recent workshop has described EBSAs in the NE Atlantic and David will draw on examples to show the scale of marine biodiversity being considered. In the same week as this CBD workshop took place, the International Panel on Climate Change published its report on Ocean and Cryosphere in a changing climate. How can we reconcile the need to protect marine areas when the goalposts are changing? This lecture will attempt to give some answers and provide an insight to this complex problem.
