Living with a changing Ocean

1. Warming world, changing ocean

adaptation and mitigation for resilient marine systems


This challenge focuses on the actions required, in the climate change adaptation and mitigation space, to maximise continued provision of the social, ecological and economic values and services that oceans support, in the face of climate change. The focus in on actions required (along with risks and benefits) in human/social systems. To achieve the sustainable but technically possible future for this challenge it will be necessary to change behaviour to overcome resistance to change at individual, corporate and government levels and to proactively adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change on marine systems and to invest in research and incentives to support these changes.
