The well-being of the oceans and humanity are inextricably linked to one another. Oceans play an integral role in climate change mitigation, absorbing some 23% of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions and more than 90% of the excess heat created by human-caused greenhouse gases.
Serious damage over the years has been done to our oceans & the marine ecosystem which has led to ocean acidification & climate change. The oceans are highly affected by climate change, which primarily impacts the ecosystems and fish communities that live in the ocean.
Climate-informed marine planning is crucial to achieving the global climate commitments made at COP26 and will help meet national goals and obligations in biodiversity, conservation, and ecosystem restoration.
