This fifth webinar in a series organized by Pew and RESOLVE will provide an opportunity to hear experts’ perspectives on national and international systems for incorporating stakeholder input into environmental decision-making and learn how these might be applied to governance of the deep seabed in areas beyond national jurisdiction. During the webinar, Ms. Alex Herman, Seabed Minerals Commissioner at Cook Islands Seabed Minerals Authority, will present a national perspective on stakeholder participation through her experiences with seabed management in the Cook Islands. Ms. Elisa Morgera, Director, One Ocean Hub, will share an international perspective on stakeholder participation in international human rights and environmental law. Dr. Aline Jaeckel, Senior Lecturer, University of New South Wales, will provide her thoughts on the current landscape and next steps on stakeholder participation at the ISA.

In addition to the initial presentations, the panelists will discuss their thoughts on the key elements required for proper stakeholder engagement in environmental decision-making. For example, how can regulators identify and proactively engage stakeholder communities; and how can the ISA best integrate the views of stakeholders when that might include all of humanity?

RESOLVE will host the webinar on Wednesday, 10 November from 15:00 to 16:30 Eastern [10:00 – 11:30 Rarotonga, Cook Islands; 20:00 – 21:30 Glasgow, Scotland; 7:00 – 8:30 (November 11) Sydney, Australia].
