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 “Blue Ocean COP25,” remains a critical milestone for ensuring that findings of the IPCC Special Report on Ocean and Cryosphereare incorporated across the UNFCCC and that initiatives like the OA Alliance are continuing to support and advance government led actions to respond and address impacts from a changing ocean.
What do policy makers really want to know about ocean acidification and its potential impacts? How can scientists, non-government entities, other stakeholders and community members help to answer their questions?
The OA Alliance presented a half-day workshop focused on best practices in communicating OA science to decision and policy makers and other stakeholders, drawing upon lessons learned and experiences from our national and subnational government members.
The Government of the Netherlands joined the OA Alliance at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on September 13, 2018. In keeping with the OA Alliance framework for action, the Netherlands has released their National Ocean Acidification Action Plan.
