The ocean hosts a wealth of climate change mitigation solutions, including offshore wind – but is increasingly under pressure from different human activities. Climate-Smart Marine Spatial Planning is a process with potential to reconcile clean energy’s role in delivering decarbonization with biodiversity considerations, wider Sustainable Development Goals, and ambitions of other marine users, including fisheries, shipping and coastal tourism.

Join UN Global Compact, the Global Wind Energy Council, and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO) for the launch of the global ‘Roadmap to Integrate Offshore Renewable Energy in a Climate-Smart Marine Spatial Plan’ – and hear from representatives of the public sector, industry and international organizations on how robust spatial planning processes can be key levers for successfully scaling-up ocean-based climate change mitigation solutions.

This event will be held from 11:30 to 13:00 (GMT) in hybrid format in the Wind Pavilion, Hall 5, SEC Centre, Blue Zone, Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow, UK. Livestreaming will be available for those who are unable to attend in-person.

Further information and registration are available on the event page.
