Workshop on ‘Marine Organisms Response to Climate Change Effects – Adaptation or Extinction?’

BERI participated in the regional workshop on ‘Marine Organisms Response to Climate Change Effects – Adaptation or Extinction?’ organized by the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association and Lund University, Sweden on 8-10 October 2018 in Mombasa, Kenya.

The workshop aimed at furthering our knowledge and specifically to:

  • Synthesize current knowledge about how marine species in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO Region) respond to rapid climate change;
  • Identify new research directions to further understand species ability or limitations to adjust to anthropogenic stress, this in order to improve future management strategies;
  • Stimulate discussions and facilitate prospective collaboration between researchers and research groups in the WIOMSA region and to develop comparative research in tropical and temperate climates.

Dr Jerome Harlay presented Ocean Acidification perspectives from the Seychelles and co-authored a research paper on “Marine Organisms response to Climate Change in the Western Indian Ocean”.
