Abstract:
Conservation and exploitation of the genetic resources of non-national maritime areas need to a legal structure that has not been foreseen at the time of the adoption of the Convention on the Law of the Sea. The Convention on Biological Diversity Considers Marine Genetic Resources in the Territory of States Parties, While the Convention on the Law of the Sea does not provide for the exploration of genetic resources of the Free Seas and the Area. This paper seeks to analyze the role of the Convention on Biological Diversity and the Convention on the Law of the Sea in shaping the future legal structure and exploiting deep sea genetic resources. The results of this research show that identification of genetic resources in the Convention on Biological Diversity from one side and identifying the common heritage of humankind beings in the Convention on the Law of the Sea, on the other hand, can be used to provide a model for the establishment and approval of a proposed biodiversity implement agreement in areas beyond national jurisdiction.
Keywords: Marine Genetic Resources, Area, Convention on Biological Diversity, Convention on the Law of the Sea, Common Heritage of Mankind, Freedom of High Sea.
