World Ocean Day, June 8, 2015, UNESCO, Paris – Toward a Strategy on Oceans and Climate at the UNFCCC COP 21 Paris | Global Ocean Forum

The global oceans community supports and urges States Parties and Observers in the UNFCCC climate negotiations to reach an ambitious legally binding agreement at the COP 21 in Paris in December 2015 adopting stringent and immediate reductions in CO2 emissions. This is essential to ensure the continuing functioning of the oceans in sustaining life on Earth, and to avoid disastrous consequences on ocean and coastal communities around the world.
