Oceans Day at Copenhagen (COP 15)

Oceans Day at Copenhagen, the first Oceans Day at a UNFCCC Conference of the Parties, provided the opportunity for Parties and Observer States, intergovernmental organizations, non-government organizations, and members of civil society at the UNFCCC COP 15 to address the implications of the emerging Copenhagen agreement for oceans, coasts, and coastal communities around the globe. Oceans Day highlighted the direct link between climate change, the health of the oceans, and human well-being, as well as the need for sufficient funding to support bold mitigation and adaptation actions that will minimize climate change impacts on coastal communities and ocean resources.
