Sustainable Asia, has released its first podcast about China’s Polar Frontiers.
This new podcast series explores the international effort to sustainably manage the Southern ocean. Dr Nengye Liu from the Adelaide Law School was a part of the conversation.
Antarctica is a global common over which no country has territorial rights. The ocean surrounding the frozen continent teems with life. Fishing here is managed by a strong international convention based on good science and communication. But the Antarctic seas now face unprecedented pressures from climate change and ocean acidification. As a newcomer to the convention, what is China’s interest in the marine life of this icy wilderness?
The podcast features:
- Dr Nengye Liu, University of Adelaide
- Cassandra Brooks, University of Colorado Boulder
- David Bowden, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)
- Zhou Wei, Greenpeace
- Julian Chen, Greenovation Hub
- Matt Pinkerton, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)

and others, who will explore China’s future role in managing the increasingly precarious Antarctic ecosystem
