As governments and communities around the world are working to address the health, social justice and economic crisis accelerated by the Covid-19 Pandemic, it’s more important than ever that climate and ocean action are understood as a critical part of immediate and long-term resiliency building.
On December 18, 2020 the OA Alliance held a virtual gathering of U.S. state members and partners who are working to deploy monitoring, mitigation and regional adaptation strategies.
Taking place 2-3 December 2020, the Ocean and Climate Change Dialogue will invite Parties and non-Party stakeholders to consider approaches to strengthening ocean related adaptation and mitigation action across the UNFCCC. Check out the OA Alliance contribution and more.
What do policy makers really want to know about ocean acidification and its potential effects? How can scientists, non-government entities, other stakeholders and community members help to answer their questions?
We hope you will join us for two events hosted by the OA Alliance, as we work to ensure that climate and ocean commitments, policies and communications accurately reflect their interdependence.
This virtual workshop, hosted by the OA Alliance and Under2 Coalition, will provide context for municipal and local-level efforts to address OA and discuss priorities for situating OA within existing policy and management frameworks including linking with climate policy and managing for related stressors.
You’re Invited to a Virtual Workshop on September 16. Engaging Municipalities on Ocean Acidification and Climate-Ocean Impacts: What Role Can Local and Regional Governments Play?
Watch the “Deep Dive” program on Ocean Acidification and Climate-Ocean Impacts, which occurred on June 4, 2020 as part of the World Economic Forum’s Virtual Ocean Dialogues 2020.
The rapid spread of COVID-19 is posing unprecedented challenges and uncertainty to governments, civil society organizations and citizens around the world. Even as we face enormous challenges, governments and civil society are standing reading to continue progress, share success stories and compelling case studies for driving climate action and implementing ocean solutions in 2020 and beyond.
Presentations will explore the role of kelp and seagrass in helping to mitigate and build resilience to impacts of ocean acidification to some marine species and ecosystems. Presentations will focus on how governments might explore pilot projects that further examine this potential.
