Managing Ocean Risk

To manage emerging ocean uses and unprecedented levels of ocean impact from climate change, overfishing and pollution, we need new tools to anticipate tipping points, and to identify management and policy options for avoiding such catastrophic shifts.

We are creating a suite of models and data analyses, starting in the Arctic, to better understand how multiple threats impact the ocean – and how potential management and policy options can mitigate these risks.

COS is also a co-founder of the Ocean Visions Initiative to develop and implement climate-based ocean solutions.
