About the event
The International Conference on Seabed Mining: Multidimensional Approaches and Challenges, adopts a unique multidisciplinary approach by focusing on the legal, regulatory, scientific, environmental and economic perspectives of seabed mining. Central to its theme is raising awareness of the important role of the International Seabed Authority and its involvement in creating a regime for deepsea mining. Experts from various Indian government bodies like that from the policy and regulatory field, mining companies, marine research centres, etc. will be a part of the conference to have a confluence with the International Seabed Authority. Through the rich and wide range of contributions, participants will be able to draw interesting new insight into the Authority’s evolutionary work as well as its legal framework.
