Directorate General for Research and Innovation has just published “Ocean-Climate Nexus - Understanding the changes, responding to the challengesEN•••” featuring a number of CINEA-run projects.

Strengthening the nexus between the ocean and climate change is a priority for the EU.
Horizon 2020 has funded scientific research on the ocean and climate nexus, which reinforces the European and global scientific capacity to better understand drivers of change in the ocean and tackle emerging threats.

Research has also helped bringing forth solutions and innovations, and supporting decision-making in climate change mitigation and adaptation policies, as well as in policies aimed at preserving a healthy state of the ocean and seas.

This new publication focuses on the crucial role of the ocean-climate nexus for climate change processes and on bringing the ocean health on a path to recovery as a priority for the EU.
