Our work

IUCN's work on climate change in the ocean has been centred around furthering understanding the science of climate change threats to the ocean: ocean warming, acidification, deoxygenation, marine heatwaves, as well as the cumulative affects of these individual ocean stressors and the risk this poses to nations and economies around the world. 

Explore our three priority areas of work on ocean and climate:

Ocean acidification

Ocean deoxygenation

Ocean warming
