Ocean Decarbonization in the Caribbean
November 22, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm AST
Please join the Maritimes Energy Association and Net Zero Atlantic for a webinar on ocean decarbonization in the Caribbean. Hear from keynote speaker, Racquel Moses, UNFCCC global ambassador and chief executive officer, Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator as well as regional stakeholders on the importance of ocean decarbonization.
The ocean is central to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions and stabilizing the Earth’s climate. This session aims to put together regional stakeholders and Atlantic Canadian companies involved in the Decarbonization of the Oceans and the Blue Economy to look beyond current solutions and brainstorm about high-impact interventions to decarbonize the Caribbean Ocean ecosystem. Our experts will discuss global trends in the sector, the pressing needs in the Caribbean decarbonization space, potential international financial institutions’ support in the space, examples of work by Ports in the region to green the industry, and how to enhance public and private collaboration to create meaningful impact. Atlantic Canada is at the forefront of research and development in the decarbonization of the ocean and electrification of the marine industry, and this webinar should be a way to start linkages between key players in our region and the Caribbean, allowing for future connections and collaborations in the Blue Economy.
