Incorporating Blue Carbon in the Nationally Contributions (NDCs) of the Countries in Western Indian Ocean Region
Western Indian Ocean Mangrove Network

The “carbon sink” service is one of the numerous important benefits blue carbon ecosystems provide to human well-being, along with food security, water quality improvement, raw materials and shoreline protection among others. When degraded, co-benefits provided by mangroves are greatly diminished along with the ecosystems’ capacity to sequester carbon. Restoration and protection of mangroves is, therefore, recognized as a priority for both climate change mitigation and adaptation; and several countries have identified measures that harness these benefits in their National Determined Contribution to Paris Agreement.

As an outcome of the negotiation meeting of the summary for policymakers of the sixth Global Environment Outlook, held in Nairobi from 21 to 24 January 2019, the Bureau of the meeting was requested to finalize a “key messages” document that would
explain concisely to ministers and other senior decision makers the key messages that emerged from the main assessment report. The Bureau therefore requested input on the draft version of the key messages document from all Member States present at the negotiation meeting and also requested comments thereon from the High-level Intergovernmental and Stakeholder Advisory Group and the Co-Chairs of the GEO-6 assessment

Children and Ozzy Ozone
United Nations Environment Programme

Children need to know about ozone depletion and its consequences because for as long as the ozone layer remains depleted, they need to protect themselves from excess UV radiation and practice "safe sun" behaviour. Also, as everyone with a daughter or son knows, children are important for another reason: they transmit messages and information to adults: their parents, families, and teachers. For these reasons, UNEP has emphasised children in its Global Awareness Campaign under the Multilateral Fund and has developed a suite of educational and public awareness products aimed at children.
