Ocean Carbon Workshop 2022
Uniting science and policy leaders to close the gap on climate models and improve global climate policy.

The second annual Ocean Carbon Workshop will be held as part of the World Ocean Tech and Innovation Summit hosted by The Economist.

The workshop will seek to build on the outcomes from the first Ocean Carbon Workshop in 2021, which identified that the ocean is missing from global climate models and international climate strategy.

This year, the discussion will focus on the natural and capital value of accurate climate strategy and how internationally coordinated ocean observation and synthesis can close the gap on climate models and improve policy decisions. Discussions and outcomes from this workshop will feed into presentations at COP27 in November in Egypt.
