UNFCCC ocean and climate change dialogue

Taking place 2-3 December 2020, the Ocean and Climate Change Dialogue as mandated by COP25, will invite Parties and non-Party stakeholders to consider approaches to strengthening ocean related adaptation and mitigation action across the UNFCCC.

The Dialogue will provide a space to discuss actions, drawing upon the knowledge and scientific findings from IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate and the submissions from Parties and non-Party stakeholders.

Ocean acidification is a direct result of human-caused carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and is altering the chemical balance of seawater that marine life depends upon for survival.   Only by explicitly including impacts of increasing acidification—and ocean change more broadly—within mitigation targets and adaptation strategies can the UNFCCC and Parties accurately assess the full suite of change and vulnerability directly caused by increasing anthropogenic CO2.

The OA Alliance has highlighted key takeaways from our official submission made to the Ocean and Climate Change Dialogue, which you can access here: “Ocean Acidification within UNFCCC Ocean Climate Dialogue (FINAL).
