About Us

The Alliance brings together jurisdictions across the globe to combat ocean acidification and changing ocean conditions as an immediate and critical threat to coastal economies and ocean ecosystems. The Alliance invites individual members, both government, and affiliate, at all stages of learning about and responding to ocean acidification.

The Alliance will work to advance scientific understanding of ocean acidification; take meaningful actions to reduce causes of acidification; protect the environment and coastal communities from impacts of a changing ocean; expand public awareness and understanding of acidification, and build sustained support for addressing this global problem.

In particular, the Alliance will work in support of inclusion of ocean health and ocean acidification mitigation, adaptation and resiliency strategies in international climate agreements.
