This new series of short WRI podcasts looks at why COP26 matters for different issues. In this episode Nicholas Walton looks at oceans with Kristian Teleki. Other episodes explore cities, the circular economy, clean air, business, food and land Use, and an overall look at the state of play ahead of COP26.
“At COP26 I’d really like to see the ocean getting greater visibility. It’s two-thirds of the planet [and] 25% of all the carbon emitted is taken up by the ocean. We really need this to be a joined-up effort over land and ocean economies, and not treat these as separate dimensions.”
