Strengthening capacity on ocean acidification monitoring, ecosystem resilience, MPA networks in a changing climate, coral reef protection and marine spatial planning

The Swedsh Government commit to financially support to IUCN to strengthen knowledge generation and taking measures within the ocean and climate context. The support contributes to capacity development, knowledge generation and methodological development, particularly in developing countries, contributing to the implementation of SDG 14, in particular 14.2, 14.3 and 14.5.

The Swedsh Government also commit to financially support to The Ocean Foundations “Ocean acidification program”. The support contributes to training researchers in monitoring and measuring, and, if possible, contribute to create a monitoring function for ocean acidification to contribute data to the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network. The support contributes to capacity development, knowledge generation and methodological development, particularly in developing countries, contributing to the implementation of SDG 14, in particular 14.3.

The Swedsh Government financially supports the implementation of the Action Plan of the International Coral Reef Initiative, ICRI, together with France and Monaco. The support contributes to the plan of action 2016-2018 adopted in November 2016. It comprises five themes:

a) Raising awareness on the importance of coral reefs and related ecosystems to help mitigate the impacts of climate change.
b) Production of an analysis of global and regional policy instruments and governance mechanisms related to the protection and sustainable management of coral reefs, with recommendations for action
c) To help reducing human threats to coral reefs and associated mangroves and seagrasses,
d) To monitor the state of coral reefs
e) To raise awareness about the importance of coral reefs and related ecosystems.

This is tied to the #OceanAction16778.
