【学术讲座】| 全球气候治理与可持续发展风险分析系列讲座(三)Dr Jessica Thorn:非洲的气候政策与实践

In recent years there has been progress in strengthening marine and coastal ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in climate policy debates in Africa, along with a surge in ocean research globally. Much national effort has been put into drafting the latest versions of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), submitted by parties to the Paris Agreement and aiming to communicate countries’ climate plans to achieve its 1.5°C goals. However, there is agreement that rising concerns over terrestrial issues in climate policy have overshadowed marine and coastal EbA concerns. Moreover, many question to what extent these high-level discussions at the global level have translated into effective EbA action at the local level. The aims of this talk are to (1) review current NDCs and other national climate and blue economy policies and processes; (2) analyse national and regional gaps; and (3) identify windows of opportunity to integrate EbA with a coastal and marine focus.

活动将于2023年10月27日16:00-18:00(北京时间)线上举行。
