Governments from the local to national levels will share policy solutions they have developed within their regions and across climate agreement frameworks through “OA Action Plans.”  Global Climate Action Summit delegations will also announce their commitment to join the OA Alliance and work toward local to global policy commitments.

The OA Alliance has 60+ members, including national governments, states, provinces, tribal nations, and cities, along with research institutions, businesses and NGOs, and welcomes your participation. The OA Alliance is building on the momentum of the historic Paris Climate Agreement by taking actions to protect the health of the oceans and address the impacts of climate related changing ocean conditions on our economies and coastal communities.
