Merwin, Anne, Sarah R. Cooley, Joshua D. McBee, Gwynne Taraska, Anna Zivian, and Chris Robbins. “‘Climate-Smart’ Marine Protected Areas for Mitigation and Adaptation Policy.” Ocean Conservancy, June 2020.
This brief reviews the potential climate benefits of marine protected areas (MPAs), discusses how policymakers and practitioners can help ensure that MPAs are “climate smart,” and underscores that, because a suite of mitigation and adaptation policies is necessary to address the climate challenge, climate-smart MPAs merit a place in the climate policy toolbox. It is part of Ocean Conservancy’s “Ocean and Climate Discussion Series,” which provides science-based analysis to inform the global dialogue on integrating ocean issues into climate policy.
