We are happy to announce that the report ‘The ocean in a changing climate: Rapidly growing risk of loss and damage?‘ which reflects the key messages of the expert dialogue held in January has been published.

Organized by the Global Programme on Risk Assessment and Management for Adaptation to Climate Change (Loss and Damage), the virtual event discussed potential and already noticeable impacts of climate change on the ocean and coastal zones at the institutional level and with a special focus on the role of development cooperation. Among some of the key issues addressed were the particular vulnerability and importance of small-scale fisheries in the context of food security and livelihoods, especially in least developed countries (LDCs) and small island developing states (SIDS).

The report ‘The ocean in a changing climate: Rapidly growing risk of loss and damage?‘ is available online and can be shared and redistributed.
