Dr Kirsty McQuaid, One Ocean Hub Research Fellow joins this panel hosted by One Ocean Hub, The Ocean Foundation & the International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification.

Bringing together marine and climate experts, they will discuss the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification on the marine environment and ecosystem services, potential mitigation and adaptation measures.

The aim of the event is to identify synergies between the law of the sea and the climate change regimes that could maximise the effectiveness of potential responses to ongoing and significant changes in the marine ecosystems (and their services to humans) from the local to the global levels as a result from climate change.
