Coral reefs are exceptional ecosystems that provide habitat, feeding, spawning, and nursery grounds for marine life, making them the essence of biodiversity.
As COP27’s premier coral event, this session will focus on global, regional, and national organizations and entities engaged in reef-based adaptation action for ecosystems and communities. Demonstrative financing instruments, innovative technology, conservation solutions and partnerships scaling up and relaying hope for coral reef longevity will be presented. High-level remarks, solution ‘deep dives’, and a dynamic expert panel will showcase integrated climate-smart solutions and increased commitment toward cross-sector collaboration at the nexus of adaptation planning and implementation of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework
Join the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Ocean, Global Fund for Coral Reefs (GFCR), World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Coral Reef Rescue Initiative (CRRI), and the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI) for this high-impact session.
