29 Nov 2018: UN Climate Change Conference sets the course for ICRS 2020

The UN Climate Change Conference will be held in Poland until 14 December. Its results will also have a major impact on the future of tropical coral reefs, says Christian Wild. The scientist acts as conference chairman of the International Coral Reef Symposium in Bremen, planned for July 2020. Read more.

The emission of CO2 and other greenhouse gases leads to warming and acidification of the oceans. Stony corals, which form reefs, react very sensitively to these environmental impacts. Ocean warming often triggers the dreaded coral bleaching, while ocean acidification impedes the formation of reef structures from lime by the corals. High CO2 emissions therefore pose two different threats to tropical coral reefs, which may eventually lead to the loss of these important ecosystems in the near future. We are therefore observing very closely what will be decided in Katowice. The UN Climate Change Conference (COP24) sets the course for the International Coral Reef Symposium (ICRS) 2020 in Bremen.
