Venue:Lecture Theatre G34, Sir Alexander Fleming Building
The world’s oceans are under threat from a range of pressures.Climate change is one major threat, which is likely to lead to a range of impacts on ocean ecosystems and people. Before addressing these threats, we need to know more about the health of the world's oceans, against a range of dimensions.
At this event, Professor Ben Halpern will discuss how the health of the oceans can be comprehensively assessed, to inform decisions about how to anticipate and deal with climate change, prioritise conservation action and manage our marine resources.
This talk will be followed by a panel discussion on ways forward to improve the health of the oceans, barriers to success, and how to overcome them, with experts working on addressing the challenges of sustainable ocean management, in the fisheries, livelihoods, conservation and marine energy sectors.
Thanks, Iain Macd.
