Ocean acidification adaptation and resilience in Africa

At this year’s 27th Annual Conference of the Parties (COP27), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will host a side event on “Ocean acidification adaptation and resilience in Africa” at the #Atoms4Climate Pavilion to highlight the need for cooperation and support in the realm of ocean acidification in African communities. This hybrid event will be livestreamed.

Description: Coastal communities in many African countries rely heavily on the sea for economic, social, and nutritional services. Ocean acidification has the potential to negatively affect marine ecosystems important to these communities. The losses would be alarming for the African continent.

The IAEA is working with local, regional and international partners to understand and undress potential impacts and solutions to ocean acidification in Africa.
