Fisheries, Aquaculture and Climate Change: The role of fisheries and aquaculture in the implementation of the Paris agreement

Fisheries, Aquaculture and Climate Change: The role of fisheries and aquaculture in the implementation of the Paris agreement
Nov 2016

Billions of people around the world depend on fisheries and aquaculture for food, essential nutrients and livelihoods. The sector is already under stress from pollution, habitat degradation, overfishing and harmful practices; climate variability, climate change and ocean acidification represent additional threats to the sector and dependent communities.

FAO and its partners are working together to reduce vulnerabilities of those most dependent on fisheries and aquaculture for their existence by designing and implementing suitable adaptation and mitigation measures. FAO and its partners are working at finding solutions to meet an ever-growing demand for fish in an era of limited natural resources, build resilience and unlock the Blue Growth potential of the aquatic systems.
