    During the UN Climate Change Conference COP 25 (2 – 13 December 2019) the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) jointly organize the Side Event: Blue climate action: marine nature-based solutions for NDCs, in collaboration with Blue Solutions (GIZ, GRID-Arendal, IUCN, UNEP), Rare, Blue Action Fund and Save our Mangroves Now! (WWF Germany).

    Nature-based Solutions significantly contribute to climate adaptation and mitigation, this is also identified in IPCC Special Report on oceans and cryosphere. Resilient coastal and marine ecosystems are key for coastal livelihoods, while additionally conserving biodiversity.

    Featuring tangible examples of local action and international initiatives as well as resource mobilization, this event will highlight successes and challenges and provide clear linkages with the NDC process. The organizers want to explore among government representatives and development partners how marine Nature based Solutions can contribute to NDCs and accelerate climate action.
