The United Nations Conference on the Oceans is taking place in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, this week. At the event, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on world leaders to “increase their ambition to recover the oceans.” He urged governments to create climate-resilient coastal infrastructure and to cut carbon emissions in maritime transport. Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa also called for the mapping of maritime territory and more investments in environmental education. What is the state of our planet’s marine ecosystem?
