Coral reef experts managing the world’s three largest barrier reefs will meet at a workshop in The Bahamas next week to share knowledge and experiences and to get better equipped to deal with the challenge of climate change.

The workshop, “Adapting to Climate Change: a workshop for coral reef managers”, is sponsored by the Australian government and will be convened by the Australian Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA), according to a release from the Australian High Commission in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

There will be two parts to the five-day workshop.  Days one and two will provide an update on climate change science, key risks for coral reefs and important developments in coral reef management.  During days three to five, the risks and management response options associated with some of the major threats from climate change, such as coral bleaching, coral disease and ocean acidification will be explored in more detail.
