EMB is at COP21 supporting the advancement of the ocean and climate change agenda (3-4 December, Paris)

EMB is attending COP21 and participating in a number of events aimed at raising the profile of the integral role of the ocean in our response to climate change. On 3 December, Nan-Chin Chu is giving a presentation at an underwater cultural heritage event hosted by UNESCO. During this event Nan-Chin will highlight the Ocean-Climate Nexus Consensus Statement  and recent EMB publications on continental shelf prehistoric research as part of her presentation on ‘Projecting the climate future by understanding the past: Rescue historical data through maritime cultural heritage.’ The Ocean-Climate Nexus Statement will be further promoted during EMB’s participation in the Ocean & Climate Forum (3 December) and Oceans Day at COP21 (4 December). Activities during Oceans Day will report on the science of oceans and climate change; showcase successful efforts in policies on oceans and climate, identify key actions on oceans and climate change to be addressed through the UNFCCC process; and identify what the oceans community can do to advance the oceans and climate change agenda outside of the UNFCCC process. The expected result of Oceans Day is an action plan for the ocean and climate change agenda for the next five years.
