This online platform is dedicated to raising the visibility of the ocean and showcasing why the ocean matters in climate negotiations and to all life on our planet. It aims to increase knowledge, commitment and action for the ocean-climate nexus during and at key events in the run up to the UN Climate Conference (COP27) in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt this November.
The Pavilion aims to:
1) Continue to raise the profile of the ocean among members of the ocean and climate community as the Virtual Ocean Pavilion did in COP26;
2)Provide a communication platform for those who are unable to participate in COP27, and other key ocean and climate conferences, in person from various parts of the world;
3)Address COP27 priorities while promoting the space for ocean in the climate conference; and
4)Promote cross-sectoral cooperation and collaboration on ocean-climate action at the national, regional, and global levels.
