    Fisheries and Aquaculture in our Changing Climate [Brochure] 2009
    Also available in:

    Coastal communities, fishers, and fish farmers are already profoundly affected by climate change. Rising sea levels, acid oceans, droughts and floods are among the impacts of climate change. Oceans provide the very air, the oxygen we breathe, and climate change is altering the ancient balance between oceans and the atmosphere. This policy brief highlights the key issues to ensure that decision makers and climate change negotiators are aware of and understand the changes and their impacts, and the opportunities for adaptation and mitigation in aquatic ecosystems, fisheries and aquaculture at the UNFCCC COP-15 in Copenhagen in December 2009 and in national and local responses to climate change. The brief also reflects the consensus of 19 concerned international and regional agencies.

    FAO is an active member of the Global Partnership for Climate, Fisheries and Aquaculture (PaCFA), a voluntary global level initiative among international organizations and sector bodies with a common concern for climate change interactions with global waters and living resources and their social and economic consequences. An immediate aim of the Partnership is to highlight key issues to alert and inform decision makers and climate change negotiators at UNFCCC meetings. From this, global, national and local responses can be formulated and implemented for adaptation and mitigation in aquatic ecosystems and for fisheries and aquaculture and in national and local responses to climate change.

    The CPF Strategic Framework for Forest and Climate Change document is intended as a resource for policymakers on climate change and forests. It puts forward a case for the strategic role of sustainable forest management (SFM) in achieving long-term climate change mitigation and as a robust and flexible framework for effective adaptation to climate change. It presents what is intended to be a living concept of cooperation that will be enriched over time. It should help pave the road to the pivota l 15th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and to the 8th session of the United Nations Forum on Forests.
