Capitol Hill Ocean Week: Global Action for Ocean, Climate, and Biodiversity

Many called 2020 the “super year for the ocean” with events and actions planned at the World Ocean Summit in Japan, the high seas negotiations in New York, the U.N. Ocean Conference in Lisbon, the World Conservation Congress in Marseille, Our Ocean Conference in Palau, U.N. Committee on Fisheries in Rome, the Convention on Biodiversity’s COP15 in China, and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change’s COP26 in Glasgow. Leaders from across the UN system share their insights into the ocean-climate-biodiversity nexus, how work is progressing to ensure the health of our global ocean, what the coronavirus pandemic has meant to these efforts in 2020, and what happens next.
