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.
Listen to a full recording from the OA Alliance’s April 15, 2020 webinar featuring studies and research from around the world, looking at biological impacts to key seafood species.
Presentations include a focus on Dungeness crab in the Pacific, Northern Shrimp and lobster in the Northern Atlantic and the New Zealand Green-lipped Mussel.
The rapid growth of the OA Alliance confirms the desire of policy and decision-makers to better understand climate impacts to marine resources and to implement actions that reduce impacts and build resiliency. Check out member highlights and impact in 2019!
The Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC)—which includes the US States of California, Oregon, and Washington and the Province of British Columbia in Canada—is working to confront the ocean and climate crises. Collectively and individually, these governments are addressing the causes of ocean acidification and changing ocean conditions while increasing the resilience of coastal communities.
The OA Alliance will be hosting a number of events at “Blue Ocean COP25.” We invite you to join us and help ensure that oceans are highlighted and play a central role in discussions and negotiations.
The OA Alliance was invited to partner with OA Alliance member, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) on a newly released publication, “Mainstreaming OA into National Policies: A Handbook for Pacific Islands,” which was showcased at a side event during SPREP’s regional meeting in Apia, Samoa on September 4.
Sharing lessons learned and best practices across state governments that have undertaken state-led efforts to address ocean and coastal acidification. The OA Alliance hosted a 2-day Coast to Coast State Workshop on Ocean and Coastal Acidification on September 26-27, 2019 at the New York Aquarium on Coney Island.
