Adapting to climate change: maintaining ecosystem services for human well-being in the Verde Island Passage, Philippines

Climate change in Verde Island PassageIAN's collaboration with Conservation International has produced this report and an accompanying newsletter on the effects of climate change in this region of the Philippines. The Verde Island Passage, located in the Coral Triangle—an area considered the center of the world's marine biodiversity—has a wealth of marine resources on which rests the livelihoods of millions of people, and which are vulnerable to increasing sea surface temperatures, sea levels, ocean acidity, storm activity, and rainfall.
