The ocean was a fundamental part of the outcomes of COP26. The Glasgow Climate Pact recognised the ocean under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and proposed annual dialogues on strengthening ocean-based action, which are due to take place before this year’s COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt. It’s hoped that more will be committed to ocean climate finance and that the COP process will become “bluer”, integrating ocean action across all levels of negotiations.
