This project has three main aspects. First it will locate and test the assumptions underlying developing state-sponsored deep seabed mining, including assumptions that developing states will capture significant revenue, that such revenue will be directed at sustainable development, and that environmental risk can be minimised and managed. Second, it will identify and develop legal options (national and international) for the effective participation of developing states in environmentally sound mining activities in the deep seabed both within and beyond national jurisdiction. Third, it will explore developing country options for structuring strategic alliance and cooperation.
