Fridays for Climate | Coral reef protection in Cook Islands

 

In Cook Islands, the EU GCCA+ SUPA project is implemented to reverse the decline of marine resources caused by a combination of climate change and human-derived factors. 🌍

In the outer islands, the source of food security and income is highly related to natural environment and fisheries resources. Coral reefs provide critical habitat for many marine organisms and recent research indicates that coral cover in Aitutaki is very low. 💦

The GCCA+ SUPA project adopts people-centered approach to strengthen data collection, reporting and management within the marine sector but as well, to raise awareness on climate-related issues and the impacts on the marine environment. It aims to scale up adaptation measures in specific sectors supported by knowledge management and capacity building.
