ABOUT THE ROUNDTABLE
The Ocean x Climate Roundtable Series: Creating a Common Agenda for our Shared Ocean is designed to foster inclusive dialogue and drive a strong ocean-climate focus on the agenda within the UNFCCC processes, other UN processes and global convenings. This series provides an opportunity for diverse stakeholders to contribute to ocean climate agenda priorities and build a collective vision that influences formal negotiations and dialogue.
The Roundtable series is hosted by Oceanic Global in partnership with IOC UNESCO and The Ocean Decade alongside collaborators at the UNFCCC and UN High-Level Climate Champions.
The series kicked off at the Ocean x Climate Summit hosted as a day-long in-person supporting event at COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt in November 2022 and continued with a virtual session in March 2023 as well as during COP28 in Dubai, UAE in December 2023. Breakout discussion circles covered topics including: UNFCCC Systems, Global Convenings, National Action, Outreach & Engagement, Policy & Finance, Bridging Gaps & Building Capacity, and more.
