These effects will only worsen in the absence of major measures to combat climate change. Fortunately, the world has the plan to respond to science: the Paris Agreement. Nearly four years ago, 195 countries adopted the Paris Agreement, a historic global action plan to combat climate change. The agreement provides the world with a framework to avoid the dangerous effects of climate change by “limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius and making efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees Celsius.” www.britannica.com/story/us-exits-paris-climate-agreement 1. The fight against climate change could generate $26 trillion in economic benefits worldwide. According to a recent report by the World Commission on the Economy and Climate, we largely underestimate the economic benefits of combating climate change. The transition to a low-carbon economy could generate $26 trillion in global economic benefits by 2030. The report covered five sectors: energy, cities, food and land use, water and industry. Ambitious measures in all these areas could result in net benefits relative to the status quo. While all the conditions of the Paris climate agreement are beneficial, some less obvious benefits should also be taken into account.

Developing an analysis of a “realistic” scenario for some fisheries would become very complex, as decisions would have to be made as to the expected difference in the MMR for each fishery or country. While this is possible, the objective of this paper is not to develop transnational fisheries management scenarios, but to assess the expected effects of climate change mitigation, ceteris paribus, on fish stocks. That is why we have chosen the RMD as our baseline, as it is widely recognized in maritime governance and the scientific community (. B, for example, its presence as an objective in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea).
