Chapter Summary

This section contains a table of treaties, agreements and declarations that occur in this book International Law and the Genetic Resources of the Deep Sea. The book provides a response to Glowka’s ‘intriguing question’ and some associated issues. It addresses a much broader issue: that is how can all human activities that have an environmental impact on deep-sea hydrothermal vent ecosystems be sustainably managed, so that this particularly unique ecosystem of international significance is preserved for future generations? The issue of the fair and equitable utilization of the Area’s genetic resources is but one subsidiary issue that needs to be addressed in responding to this overall question.

Keywords: deep-sea hydrothermal vent; genetic resources; international law
