About the Authors
  • This book, the first in a series that focuses on treaty implementation for sustainable development, examines key legal aspects of implementing the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) at national and international levels. The volume provides a serious contribution to the current legal and political academic debates on biosafety by discussing key issues under the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety that affect the further design of national and international law on biosafety, and analyzing progress in the development of domestic regulatory regimes for biosafety. In the year of the fifth UN Meeting of the Parties to the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, at the signature of a new Nagoya-Kuala Lumpur Protocol on Liability and Redress, this timely book examines developments in biosafety law and policy.

    • Defines the key issues in sustainable development law on biosafety
    • Analyzes the key international mechanisms of the Cartagena Protocol
    • Examines the practical, legal, political and economic challenges and solutions encountered in the development and implementation of biosafety regulatory regimes in several countries from different regions of the world

    'In the context of multidisciplinary subject matters such as biotechnology and biosafety, this volume is a welcome addition, one that not only enriches but complements and is complemented by a multitude of other relevant works on biotechnology and biosafety beyond the limits of a sustainable development analysis.' Chidi Oguamanam, McGill Journal of Sustainable Development Law

    '… this book has made a commendable effort in dealing with the crucial CPB [Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety] in a very holistic manner covering various tenets of the protocol in coherence with the various principles of sustainable development.'

    This book examines key legal aspects of implementing the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) at national and international levels. It is published as a pioneer title under the Cambridge University Press series on Treaty implementation for sustainable development, which focuses on examining how new international treaties address contemporary global challenges by emphasizing how their implementation reflects a transition from international legal theory and treaty texts to domestic regulation and practice. In the context of multidisciplinary subject matters such as biotechnology and biosafety, this volume not only enriches but complements other relevant works on biotechnology and biosafety. It is an essential read for those interested in understanding how the Cartagena Protocol will impact the sustainable use of biological resources, and ultimately the realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
