UNFCCC COP28 Side Event: Opportunities, tools and challenges towards an inclusive and equitable approach for local & regional adaptation to a rapidly changing ocean

01/12/2023 @ 11:15 am - 12:30 pm +04

There is an urgent need for tools in support of adapting to climate change impacts of a rapidly changing ocean. At the same time, some technical solutions and innovations being proposed are not appropriate for Developing and Least Developed Countries (many of whom are Commonwealth Partners) as they require large financial resources and/or significant infrastructure investment.

It is therefore imperative to prioritise the development and mobilisation of appropriate tools that can be rolled out quickly and efficiently at a global scale in a way that promotes equitability and inclusivity and without causing unintended environmental consequences.

This event will feature an expert panel including high-level government representatives, the Commonwealth Secretariat, research and conservation as well as finance and investment sectors, will identify the requirements, opportunities and possible barriers for implementing equitable and accessible ocean adaption solutions, specifically for countries with minimal financial resource and high levels of marine biodiversity.

Organisers: Commonwealth Blue Charter and Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML)

Venue: Commonwealth Pavilion, Blue Zone


11:15 am - 12:30 pm +04
