Action Plans and Case Studies

 

 

OA Alliance membership represents nearly 300 million people and 366,414 kilometers of coastline. Members of the OA Alliance are helping to promote and drive implementation of actions, including nature-based solutions, that address the causes of ocean acidification and increase biodiversity, adaptative capacity and resiliency of coastal communities and marine livelihoods.

While we must reduce carbon dioxide emissions—the number one cause of acidification—there are actions that governments and affiliate members can and should be taking now to increase biodiversity, adaptive capacity and resiliency in the face of future change.

Facilitated through the OA Alliance, national, subnational, regional and tribal governments are proactively responding to the impacts of ocean acidification as they create OA Action Plans to effectively promote solutions and advancing knowledge into action.

OA Action Plans and member case studies describe real, tangible actions that members are taking—or will take—to better understand and respond to the threat of ocean acidification and other climate-ocean impacts. OA Action Plans and case studies include strategies for reducing carbon emissions and local land-based pollution, strengthening monitoring nearshore to better understand and predict local conditions, investing in adaptive measures in partnership with industry or seafood dependent communities, and advancing information sharing strategies that help policy makers respond.

“Changing ocean conditions, including ocean acidification, threatens our culture and way of life. Fishing is key to the Makah, since time immemorial the Makah people, our culture, and ceremonies have been dependent on resources from the ocean. The Makah Tribe is developing an action plan to address these threats to protect Makah’s treaty reserved rights.”

Chairman John Ides, Sr. of the Makah Tribe.
