Here’s my promised update on the winners of the Dodo awards. Canada and UK share the prize.

Canada gets the Dodo ward for “breaching the moratorium on ocean fertilisation and geo-engineering and its stance on biofuels”.

UK gets the prize for “blocking a precautionary approach to synthetic biology, and their development of biodiversity offsets.

Given that three developing countries were in the running – Brazil, China and Paraguay – need to watch the next list of nominees.
