UNFCCC COP27: Virtual Side Event
Thursday 10 November 2022, 09:00-10:30 (GMT)
Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are among the countries that suffer disproportionately the most from the impacts of climate change. Increased climate resilience and efforts in SIDS is necessary as their existence and survival is to large extent intertwined with the ocean. Aquatic Foods have an important and growing role in nutrition and food security, and high relevance to island communities.
This event will present data and key findings of novel studies commissioned by FAO on climate change impacts on marine resources harvested in SIDS and their implications for nutrition and food security, as well as on the distinct coastal conditions and hazards, and relevant areas for adaptation interventions in SIDS. A panel of experts will discuss responses and opportunities to address climate vulnerabilities and increase resilience of aquatic food production and hazards along the coastlines of SIDS.
Solving-FCB’s Dr William Cheung will present on Coastal fisheries resources under climate scenarios.
9th World Fisheries Congress
March 3–9, 2024.
Seattle, Washington, USA
Seattle, located in the Pacific Northwest of the United State, is a world-class city with easy global travel access and many wonderful attractions. The city is also at the center of internationally important marine and anadromous fisheries, and has deep cultural, academic, and socioeconomic ties to fish and fisheries.
The theme of the 2024 WFC will be “Fish and Fisheries at the Nexus of the Food-Water-Energy Nexus.” The goal of the 2024 WFC will be to focus on current and emerging impacts on the world’s fish and fisheries and examine how society can successfully develop approaches that allow our marine and freshwater systems to provide sustainable fish and fisheries into the future. Members of the International Program Committee are currently working to refine the conference themes, develop conference content, and promote the conference through appropriate networks.
