S.A Youth Call on the President to Listen to the Ocean
Every year on Youth Day we have the opportunity to celebrate and mainstream young peoples’ voices, actions and initiatives. The youth involved in the non-profit organisation, WILDOCEANS, are continuing in their incredible work to protect our oceans. They believe the time to act is now in protecting our oceans before we risk ocean collapse, subsequent economic loss and face a biodiversity crisis. This morning WILDOCEANS Strategic Communications Manager, Ruth Mthembu and WILDOCEANS Communications Assistant, Nomzamo Phungula join us in the studio to tell us more about their latest campaign.

South Africa and 30x30: Social, economic and environmental benefits
Today, one million plant and animal species face extinction, but a scientific proposal to conserve 30% of our planet's land and ocean by 2030 will help curb this crisis.

Various speakers shared their insights on the benefits that biodiversity conservation offers South Africa's people, economy and environment. Speakers included Dr. Enric Sala, Ms. Ruth Mthembu, Dr. Rashid Sumaila, Ms, Merrisa Naidoo, Mr. Sineguguzukulu and Ms Buyisiwe Makhoba Dlamnini.
Ocean and Climate Change Dialogue to consider how to strengthen adaptation and mitigation action (day 2),03.12.2020
The Conference of the Parties at COP 25, by its decision 1/CP.25 paragraph 31, requested the Chair of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) to convene at its fifty-second session (June 2020) a dialogue on the ocean and climate change to consider how to strengthen mitigation and adaptation action in this context. The COP also invited Parties and non-Party stakeholders to submit inputs via the submission portal by 31 March 2020 to inform the dialogue. The COP requested the Chair of the SBSTA to prepare an informal summary report on the dialogue. The dialogue will provide a space for Parties and non-Party stakeholders to discuss how to strengthen adaptation and mitigation action on ocean and climate change, drawing upon the knowledge and scientific findings from IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate and the submissions from Parties and non-Party stakeholders.
