Ocean Pavilion

océanos

The following messages were conveyed:

  • Oceans are a source of life. Because of their biodiversity and productivity in the outcrop areas, they have a high economic value, providing a great variety of ecosystem services supporting societies.
  • We have an ancient marine culture. Since ancient times coastal communities have received the benefits of the sea.
  • Oceans are also threatened by climate change. We all should change our vision of the sea, and take actions to protect and conserve it.
  • Ocean future is in our hands. It is time to act to reduce pollution and climate change effects in oceans and to increase their resilience.
  • Peru has the challenge to increase research and access to information on sea subjects and their relation to climate change, to make right decisions and adapt to its potential impacts.
