Event Details

COP26 is a vital point in the response to the global climate emergency. One of the biggest carbon stores is our seas, yet it is not included in nations climate change plans, and emissions or sequestration from it are not yet counted in the UK, the EU, or any nation’s annual emissions statistics. This briefing aims to provide an introduction to the role our seas play in addressing the climate crisis and what more should be done to manage activities taking place in them.

We will be joined by the following speakers,

Dr Rashid Sumaila, Professor and Director of the Fisheries Economics Research Unit at the University of British Columbia Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries
Dr Emma Cavan, Research Fellow, Imperial College London
Claudia Beamish, former Member of Scottish Parliament and Special Advisor to the Scottish Labour Group on COP26
