Powering Ocean Breakthroughs with 100% Sustainable Ocean Management
This event will cast a spotlight on the ocean and underscore country commitments toward the goal of achieving 100% Sustainable Ocean Management through the development and implementation of Sustainable Ocean Plans (SOPs), which are integral to addressing Ocean Breakthroughs. Participants will showcase ocean-based climate solutions to reduce the emissions gap between current and future emissions by up to 35 percent on a 1.5°C pathway, as well as to strengthen food security, energy capacity, and local livelihoods through enhanced climate action.
State and non-state actors will jointly set the way for the blue ambition loop and a whole-of-society approach where the ocean is part of the solution - with key leaders across sectors showing how this agenda will be taken forward in future years. This high-level convening will position the ocean at the heart of humanity's challenges securing a resilient, nature-positive, and net-zero future.
