Marking the momentum on ocean climate action and setting the agenda for progress at COP26.

Ocean-climate impacts are damaging communities and ecosystems worldwide. Our need for a healthy ocean is just one of the reasons countries must create a carbon-free and climate-resilient future. Sustainable ocean-based climate solutions, from scaling up offshore renewable energy to creating marine-protected areas, can help support this transition.

There is a growing awareness of the links between the ocean and climate change. In December 2019, Parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change adopted a first-of-its-kind decision that mandated a dialogue “on the ocean and climate change to consider how to strengthen mitigation and adaptation action.” That dialogue took place 02 & 03 December 2020.

As the next U.N. climate summit (COP26) has been postponed until November 2021, it is essential to maintain the momentum on climate and ocean action. The Ocean-Climate Ambition Summit will be an opportunity to take stock of the ocean-climate dialogue and next steps to advance ocean-climate issues through COP26.
