G7 Countries to Discuss Climate Change, Oceans in September

TORONTO – Canada announced on Monday that the Group of Seven Environment, Energy and Ocean Ministers meeting will be held from Sept. 19-21, in which member countries will discuss climate change, fisheries, plastics pollution and energy security, among other issues.

As president of the G7 for 2018, Canada said that the meeting will held in Halifax, in Nova Scotia on the Atlantic coast, under the heading “Working Together on Climate Change, Oceans and Clean Energy.”

The G7 Summit, held between June 8-9 in Canada, concluded with the endorsement of the “Charlevoix Blueprint for Healthy Oceans and Seas and Resilient Coastal Communities.” The objective is to promote oceans and sustainable fisheries and to act against marine pollution.

In addition, the European Union and the G7 countries, except the United States, also agreed on an “Ocean Plastics Charter” to reduce the accumulation of plastic garbage in the seas.

Dominique LeBlanc, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, said in a statement that these G7 ministerial meetings will be “an opportunity to foster collaboration with other international leaders on these important ocean issues.”
