Marine Havens Under Threat: The impacts of the climate crisis on tropical coral reefs and the communities that rely on them

EJF urges decision-makers to take immediate action to protect these ecosystems and the communities that rely on them. To do this, we must urgently increase the ambition and scale of action to decarbonise the global economy and effectively address the climate crisis, while simultaneously eradicating pollution and illegal and damaging fishing practices. This report focuses on climate change as the primary long-term threat to coral reefs, but it is clear that both unsustainable fishing and pollution are serious near-term threats that must not be neglected.
