London convention framework - Definition, glossary, details

The London convention framework comprises the London Convention itself and its 1996 protocol known as London protocol. The London convention is the one of the oldest global convention to protect the marine environment from human activities. The relevance of London convention to carbon storage is limited as it applies to water column and not the sea bed and its subsoil. It has been force since 1975 and has 80 contracting parties to it. The London protocol is more relevant to carbon storage as it was meant to eventually replace London convention.  The convention was not enacted keeping in mind carbon storage in offshore regions. In order to include this aspect, the convention was amended subsequently in 2007 which has now more relevance to CCS.
