As the Earth’s temperature rises, climate change and ocean acidification are affecting species, ecosystems, and people around the world. While greenhouse gas reduction targets are critical to protecting the ocean, marine protected areas (MPAs) are widely recognized as an effective, nature-based solution for climate change mitigation and conserving biodiversity. Global collaboration is key to achieving climate benefits provided by MPAs.
What is the role of MPAs and MPA networks as nature-based solutions for biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience? How are countries from the northern and southern hemispheres working together to solve one of the world’s most pressing issues?
Join the Atlantic Council, in partnership with the Wilson Center, Mission Blue, and the Chilean Embassy in the United States, on Tuesday, June 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. EDT, for a public discussion on the importance of the ocean in climate change and biodiversity negotiations. This event will also mark the launch of the International Partnership on MPAs, Biodiversity, and Climate Change, an alliance between Chile, Costa Rica, France, United Kingdom, and the United States to dramatically scale up ocean and climate action during this decisive decade.
