The dual biodiversity and climate crises are intrinsically linked, with resilient marine ecosystems central to joint solutions. This reception will explore the connectivity of marine protections and the effects of a changing climate. We will also hear from CMAR States as they reflect on regional progress, challenges, and lessons learned over the past year of cooperative action through enhanced political will.
