You are invited to join a webinar on Ocean Acidification in the Mediterranean organized as part of the Monaco Ocean Week 2021, on March 24th at 14h00-15:30 CET: Future Priorities for Addressing Ocean Acidification in the Mediterranean: from research to policy. See below for the full programme and invitation flyer attached.
Despite long-standing research programmes and major efforts to increase awareness in the Mediterranean region, policies and mitigation efforts that are specifically targeted at Ocean Acidification are still thin on the ground. For Part One, following an overview of the status of OA science in the Mediterranean region, this webinar will examine the socio-economic aspects of OA, the reasons behind the policy gaps, the actions that can realistically implemented at national and regional levels, and the opportunities the current enhanced global focus on climate change could bring to improve the resilience of Mediterranean marine ecosystems. At the end of this part, some highlights on how to better engage Southern Mediterranean countries in OA science and actions will be presented. In Part Two, a discussion panel (Q/A session) will draw answers from critical questions related to OA and climate change from experts and policy-makers from various Mediterranean countries, and beyond.
Translation into French will be made available.
Joining instructions and more information can be found on the Monaco Ocean Week website.
