COP23 Awareness Seminar OCEAN & Climate

COP23 Awareness Seminar OCEAN & Climate

When: May 19, 2017, 2:30 pm
Venue: University of Fiji
Address: Lautoka , Fiji (map)
Organizer: Pacific Islands Development Forum (This event have been posted on Facebook first)
The world´s oceans play a crucial role in regulating our climate. Oceans absorb more than 25% of Carbon dioxide and more than 90% of heat that accumulates in the atmosphere because of human activity and therefore have been major contributors to limit global warming.

As part of our continued efforts to support Fiji’s Presidency of COP 23 and CO-Presidency of UN Ocean Conference, we are raising public awareness on the link between sustainable ocean management and climate change since Fiji and other Pacific Island Countries (PICs) are among the most vulnerable and face the brunt of climate related impacts.

Organized by Department of Science, School of Science & Technology (SoST), The University of Fiji in collaboration with Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF)
