I just wanted to publicly note what a privilege it has been to work with Sandy Luk and the team at ClientEarth.
WDCS has partnered with ClientEarth to look at the issue of the procedural block in the EU that seems to have stopped all efforts to oppose whaling because countries are scared that they may have to abstain on all votes where they cannot agree with unanimity.
Lost already?, you are not the only one. The EU Commission tell us that they don’t know where the solution lies, and the countries are wandering around waiting to trip over an answer.
Well Sandy has given the debate the impetus it needs and provided an excellent review of what the voting process actually should be. So hats off to the ClientEarth and lets see if the EU can now get its act together and actually start fighting to protect the whales.
