Ocean-based climate solutions can provide 20% of the emissions reductions needed to avoid catastrophic Climate Change. The Pacific region, host of the largest of the world's five oceans, can be a game changer for Ocean Climate Action.
For example, the carbon that is captured and stored by the oceans and coastal ecosystems, especially by vegetated coastal ecosystems: seagrass meadows, tidal marshes and mangrove forests, also known as ‘blue carbon’, can help mitigate climate change. Opportunities need to be explored in the Pacific region to release its full potential.
