The ISA and the Government of Chile jointly hosted a Sensitization Seminar in Santiago from 5-6 November 2015.
The Seminar brought together experts from the international legal and scientific community with national and regional government officials, scientists, researchers and academics to discuss scientific research and marine mineral development. It also highlighted the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea; the institutions created under the Convention; the international framework and regulation of deep seabed; the role of the International Seabed Authority and perspectives of deep sea mining in the South Pacific Ocean.
Sensitization seminars are organized by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) in partnership with the hosting country and experts from various scientific and legal institutions associated with the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. Similar sensitization seminars have been held in Indonesia, Brazil, Nigeria, Spain, Jamaica, Mexico, and South Africa with three in New York in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
