The Ocean Acidification international Reference User Group releases a new Ocean Acidification guide

The Ocean Acidification international Reference User Group (OA-iRUG) has just released a new guide for Latin America and the Caribbean. It provides an overview of why Ocean Acidification is an issue, how it will impact ecosystems, and gives examples of actions to address it. The guide was released during the first regional Latin American OA-iRUG meeting which is being held from 19 to 21 March 2018 at Invemar, in Colombia.

The meeting brought together stakeholders including both scientists and policy-makers such as HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, David Osborn, Director of the IAEA Environment Laboratories, Libby Jewett, Director of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program, Kirsten Isensee, programme specialist at IOC-UNESCO, as well as Michelle Graco, co-chair of the Latin-American Ocean Acidification Network (LAOCA).

The OA-iRUG’s objective is to share scientific findings with non-scientific audiences and science end-users, in particular policy and decision-makers. It brings together scientists and stakeholders from various backgrounds such as industry, governmental and non-governmental organisations to facilitate the exchange of information and the presentation of key findings.
