Washington State Governor Jay Inslee addressed the impacts of ocean acidification and the goals of the OA Alliance in his remarks at the opening plenary of the Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Agenda meeting at UN Headquarters on March 23rd.  

This event gathered representatives of governments, international organizations, the private sector and other stakeholders who are advancing solutions to implement the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and other climate change agreements.

The event further paved the way for meaningful engagement at the UN Conference to Support the Implementation of SDG 14: Oceans, also known as The Ocean Conference, 5-9 June in New York. The OA Alliance plans to participate at the UN Conference and has scheduled a webinar April 21 to discuss plans in more detail.

If representatives of your government or organization also plan to attend the UN SDG 14 conference in June, please let us know so we can coordinate opportunities.
