OA Week 2021 Community Discussion – REMARCO regional observatory takes up the challenge: reporting marine acidity in Latin America and the Caribbean
September 17, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
The Marine-Coastal Stressors Research Network in Latin America and the Caribbean (REMARCO) is made up of institutions from 18 Latin American and Caribbean countries, participating in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) technical cooperation project RLA/7/025 for the strengthening of coastal marine research. The project currently includes research on aspects of harmful algal blooms, eutrophication, microplastics and ocean acidification with the aim of communicating with the different actors and generating tools for decision-makers. The main objective of the acidification component is to build capacity in the region to measure ocean acidity and report on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator 14.3.1 (pH).
A “round table” will be held with representatives of the ocean acidification component from different REMARCO countries (Spanish, English and Portuguese languages) and a representative of IAEA. The representatives will make 5 min interventions and after each presentation where a question and answer session will be opened for discussion with the audience (each question will be answered in the language in which the question is generated).
