Global warming affects oceans and seas in Africa – SABC News

Africa is surrounded by stunning seas and oceans that have sustained people for centuries. The Atlantic, Mediterranean, Indian and Red seas all flow around and over Africa.

The African Union (AU) declared 2015-2025 as the “Decade of African Oceans” aimed at fulfilling the 2050 African Integrated Maritime Agenda (AIMS).

Every year on July 25, Africa Day is commemorated as Africa Day of Oceans and Seas.

The “Decade of Seas and Oceans in Africa” ​​was launched in July 2015 at the inaugural meeting of the Defense Group on the 2050 AIM Strategy.

Participants included a wide range of stakeholders, including AU member states, non-governmental organizations and businesses.

The seas and oceans have been a means of transportation, a source of nutrition, medicine and income as well as a haven for both humans and animals to simply enjoy.

The United Nations aims to bring about a better flow of such issues with its maritime policy. The seas and oceans around Africa face challenges, including pollution and overfishing. They continue to face the effects of global warming.

38 of Africa’s 54 countries are coastal and their ecosystems, people, animals and businesses all depend on the oceans.
