Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP) - UK Overseas Territories Climate Change Report Card
Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (MCCIP secretariat)
The 14 UK Overseas Territories (UKOTs) collectively represent the 6th largest marine estate in the world. They support an incredibly diverse range of ecosystems, and their people have strong cultural identities closely tied to the sea. Climate change presents a major threat to these unique territories, and the islanders’ way of life. The UK Marine Climate Change Impacts Partnership (MCCIP), working together with the scientific community and representatives from across the territories, has published the first ever comprehensive climate change assessment for the UKOTs. This important work shines a light on UKOTs in this crucial year of climate action.
