Strategic Program 2
Reef life in a changing world
Program 2 aims to describe, understand and anticipate the changes that reef organisms will face in the coming years. The lessons learned from this research will provide a sound scientific basis to inform conservation management, restoration and coastal planning decisions.
Humans have a profound impact on our planet. Coral reefs are at the forefront of this change, and there is no longer any doubt that coral reefs as we know them could disappear before the next century. Even though we are now reducing CO2 emissions, rapid climate change is already underway. The frequency, intensity and diversity of environmental changes today pose a direct threat to the survival of reef organisms. Climate change is not the only driver of environmental change: coastal development has transformed the coasts and is becoming a phenomenon of particular concern for coral reefs. In this context, it is critical to monitor the future of species, identify the biological mechanisms that modify their diversity and assess the adaptive capacity of reef organisms.
