Chapter 9: Climate change, marine ecosystems and global fisheries
In this chapter the authors review current knowledge on the potential impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems and the millions of people worldwide who depend on them. The authors highlight the fact that different parts of the world would be impacted differently and, therefore, climate will impact people in different regions differently. They then provide a number of policy recommendations to help prepare society for the changes that we are already seeing and those yet to come. To build climate resilient marine ecosystems and global fisheries, the authors highlight the need to transform their management by increasing incentives for community engagement, deploy marine protected areas, and promote sustainability enhancing public policies by avoiding harmful ones such as the provision of capacity enhancing fisheries subsidies.
