Ocean acidification impacts on coastal communities: Report from the Third International Workshop “Bridging the Gap between Ocean Acidification and Economic Valuation”, 12-14 January 2015, Monaco

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 11.01.16Following the Third International Workshop “Bridging the Gap between Ocean Acidification and Economic Valuation”, 12-14 January 2015, Monaco, the Scientific Center of Monaco (CSM) and the Environment Laboratories of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), co-organizers of the event, have just launched a scientific report compiled due to the contribution of the workshop participants – 53 experts from natural and social sciences representing 20 countries. The report covers the five major topics discussed during the workshop – every chapter presents a number of specific recommendations related to:

  • coastal communities depending on fisheries and aquaculture;
  • coral reefs and marine-based tourism;
  • modelling as a tool to evaluate the bio-socio-economic impacts of ocean acidification;
  • potential societal action and adaptation;
  • governance, governments and legislation.

A summarized version of the report was released on 8 June 2015 on the occasion of the World Oceans Day in Paris and can be viewed here.
