With increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and higher temperatures in the ocean, what does climate change mean for the health of our oceans and ourselves? Oceans regulate our climate and have the capacity to absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide, but are our oceans becoming more acidic? How do such changes translate to our fish populations and coral reefs? Will these changes negatively impact our food security and human health?
On the 08th June 2018, the Head of Multilateral Environmental Agreements, Ministry of Planning and Development Trinidad and Tobago, Mr. Kishan Kumarsingh will deliver the lecture titled, ‘Oceans and Climate Change – What does it Mean for Small Island States’ at the Old Fire Station Building in Port of Spain commencing promptly at 5:00 p.m. Mr. Kumarsingh will discuss the challenges and impact of climate change on small islands states and will share ideas on how we can adopt healthy practices to provide sustainable solutions to address climate change.
In this regard, I am pleased to invite you to the second lecture on ‘Oceans and Climate Change – What does it Mean for Small Island States’.
Be on the lookout for more lectures in the months of June and July 2018. For more information on the lecture series, including more detailed information on individual lectures, please visit www.ima.gov.tt.
