United Nations, New York, 24 May 2010 - This video on the UN Convention of the Law of the Sea will take you on a journey into the life of a fisherman from a small costal village in Tunisia. A trip into the workings of the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea. The Convention is one of the most comprehensive instruments of International Law. It covers fishing and shipping, pollution and conservation, piracy and maritime border. Often called a "Constitution for the Seas" it plays a vital role in our work for Sustainable Development and Peace.

Film "Tunisia: Saving a Sea, Saving a Culture": The Oceans play an essential role in sustaining life, but marine resources are increasingly being depleted. That's what's happened in a small fishing village in Tunisia, where over fishing has destroyed people's livelihoods. We take you there to see how local fishermen are bringing back the fish and safeguarding an activity that has been passed through generations.
