A discussion hosted by the Pacific Rim Ocean-Climate Action Partnership (PROCAP) with the support of the United Nations Foundation and Ocean Conservancy as the acting secretariat for PROCAP.
With a number of key moments to advance ocean-climate action on the horizon, including the U.N. ocean-climate dialogue in November 2020, the ongoing submission of NDCs, and the U.N. climate conference in November 2021 (COP26), please join us for a discussion on how countries can create a blue-green future.
Climate change is the greatest threat to the ocean and the coastal communities that rely on its health. Yet the ocean is also a source of sustainable climate solutions. A comprehensive climate strategy will maximize ocean-based measures—from decarbonizing the shipping sector to protecting and restoring coastal blue carbon ecosystems—to complement the full suite of policies necessary to phase out carbon pollution and build climate resilience for frontline communities and ecosystems.
