In the most biodiverse marine ecosystems in the world, SeaWeb's Asia Pacific program is strengthening voices for ocean conservation by bridging the worlds of marine science, journalism, and public policy. We work to amplify and clarify the messages of local scientists and ocean experts, and to connect journalists and decision-makers to ocean issues and specialists.

We envision an Asia Pacific region where all people will act on the belief that a healthy ocean is vital to human life and a sustainable future.

Climate change

The Many Strong Voices alliance says 'societies of the Arctic and Small Island Developing States are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change in similar ways.' It aims to bring the two regions together 'to take collaborative and strategic actions on climate change mitigation and adaptation.'
"Together, we have identified common problems as a consequence of climate change, and our communities are suffering," said Taito Nakalevu, Climate Change Officer with the Pacific Regional Environment Programme, based in Samoa. "We insist that those countries that are causing the problems have a responsibility to those whose lives are being affected."
