Why International Action?
Many living resources are shared and occur in areas beyond national jurisdiction. Living resources in one state may be affected by activities carried out in another. Such resources can be conserved only by International Action. International Action is also necessary to promote the conservation of genetic and other resources that are vital for the survival and well being of all humanity and to stimulate and support national action.
International Conventions is the most frequent method of creating and binding international rules and is a formal instrument of a multilateral character.
