As an Observer Organisation of the United Nations’ Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Monash made an official submission to inform UNFCCC’s Ocean and Climate Change Dialogue 2022. The submission called on the UNFCCC to facilitate understanding of the ocean-climate nexus, as well as increased ocean-climate action. It suggested four topics for discussion: (1) Improved alignment between climate and ocean related regimes; (2) Integration of oceans in UNFCCC outcomes and processes; (3) Improved institutional arrangements; and (4) Inclusion of blue finance as part of climate finance. Monash’s submission was referenced in the “Information Note by the Chair” for the Dialogue.
