Climate & Oceans
Supporting the implementation of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda through Ecosystem-based Adaptation
Together with partners in Guatemala and India, the IKI project aims to improve understanding of the preconditions under which Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) measures can effectively be scaled up and consolidated through inclusive multi-stakeholder dialogues that bring local voices and experiences into national implementation processes.
Land, oceans and climate governance go hand in hand...
Ocean's are a major component of our planet's climate system (along with the atmosphere). The entire water cycle starts and ends in our oceans and they serve as climate regulators by transporting absorbed heat around the globe. Additionally, oceans are an important food source for many people around the world. Healthy, clean and productive oceans are therefore crucial for planetary wellbeing. Oceanic and land ecosystems are connected in a variety of ways. Human activities on land can produce consequences in nearby oceans, such as in areas where rivers cross populated areas and carry pollution and runoff towards the sea. Unsustainable human activities affect marine ecosystems, both directly and indirectly.
TMG has joined the Partnership for Regional Ocean Governance (PROG) in order to help overcome these complex challenges. Our efforts are focused on setting in motion informal processes to achieve SDG14, which calls for a world where ocean resources are conserved and where the wellbeing of marine ecosystems and those dependent on it are enhanced.
