Such events play a pivotal role in enhancing awareness about the importance of clean oceans amongst the general populace.

World Oceans Day is being observed today under the theme "Gender and the Oceans". The day recognizes the important contribution of sustainable development and the management of resources and the uses of the oceans and seas for worldwide development goals, including those contained in the United Nations Millennium Declaration.

World Oceans Day is an opportunity to raise global awareness of the challenges faced by the worldwide community in connection with the oceans.

Legarda said that, according to the United Nations, oceans absorb about 30% of carbon dioxide emissions produced by humans, mitigating the impacts of global warming.

The theme selected for this year's World Ocean Day, he said, offered an opportunity to explore the gender dimension of human relationship with the oceans. Thus, human activity on land is directly affecting the oceans and the life that flourishes within. Pakistan Navy, being the major stakeholder in the maritime domain, has taken the lead in creating awareness about promoting gender equality in ocean-related fields including marine scientific research, oceanography, fisheries, marine policy-making and management. He further urged all to reaffirm their commitment to preserving sustainable use of the oceans and marine resources while making conscious efforts to empower women in various ocean-related economic activities. We also acknowledge the need for greater participation of women to address these challenges in a more sustainable manner.

"Let this year's celebrations of World Oceans Day and Coral Triangle Day place more emphasis on women participation in promoting ocean health". Some of the major PN initiatives include beach cleaning, construction of harbour debris collection barges, intensified Mangroves plantation, banning use of destructive fishing nets, tackling oil pollution at sea and coordination with industrial community to reduce waste dumping into the sea, he added. Only together, we can protect Earth's ultimate source of life.
