One Ocean, One Climate, One Future

Prapti Dasgupta, SRM University, Delhi-NCR


As we face the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century, the conceptual framework of "One Ocean, One Climate, One Future" underscores the mutually reinforcing nature of our ocean, climate, and one's overall well-being. The ocean, thus rendering up more than 70% of the entire surface of the Earth, is not only an immense accumulation of water but also an indispensable component in regulating the ambient temperature of our planet. It reduces the detrimental impacts of human activity on the climate system by embracing extra heat and carbon dioxide. However, the marine environment's ability to play this vital function is becoming increasingly in jeopardy as an inevitable consequence of warming and acidification. taking into account the profound connection between the ocean and the climate, it is unambiguous that we need to put forth a coordinated strategy towards resolving all of these associated shortcomings. The ocean's existence is essential to the long-term viability of modern human societies. The ocean supplies indispensable economic as well as social services, natural resources for countries that are developing, and oxygen for every breath we inhale. It draws together people through common cultures and serves as the main pathway for 90% of trade around the world. To ensure the safety of our coastlines, maintain the wholesomeness of our water, produce food, as well as regulate the climate and weather, we entrust ourselves to the ecosystem services provided by the ocean. A proactive approach to the noticeable ocean resources will be essential to the development of sustainable social and environmentally friendly systems.
