OA Alliance members have continued to lead by raising ambition for climate action and promoting efforts that increase biodiversity, adaptive capacity and resilience. Check our work together in 2020!
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.
Municipal governments are on the forefront of experiencing the direct impacts of climate and ocean change as they must continually absorb and prepare for adverse impacts to coastal communities. Learn more about what local governments can do to address ocean and coastal acidification.
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?
OA Action Plans effectively promote solutions and help advance knowledge into action.
Check out our new infographic which highlights some key steps for getting started on an OA Action Plan!
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.
Ocean acidification is a climate-ocean impact. Carbon dioxide emissions are being absorbed by the ocean and altering the chemical balance of seawater which marine life depends upon for survival. Learn more about combined climate-ocean impacts.
