UN session on high seas biodiversity ends without agreement

UNITED NATIONS, United States, Aug 27, 2022 (BSS/AFP) - UN member states
ended two weeks of negotiations Friday without a treaty to protect
biodiversity in the high seas, an agreement that would have addressed growing
environmental and economic challenges.

"Although we did make excellent progress we still do need a little bit more
time to progress towards the finish line," said conference chair Rena Lee,
adding that a plenary session had nonetheless approved resumption of the
negotiations at a future unspecified date.
