Description

In 2017, UNESCO’s World Heritage Centre published the first global scientific assessment of the impact of climate change on UNESCO World Heritage coral reefs.

This update responds to the recommendation of the Assessment to undertake high-resolution future projection analysis under the RCP2.6 emissions scenario, in which emissions peak during the current decade (2010-2020) and achieve the limit of well below 2°C by 2100. This update further responds to the World Heritage Committee request to make available the most current knowledge regarding the impacts of climate change on World Heritage properties. This updated analysis provides understanding of the implications of meeting the long-term goal of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement for World Heritage-listed coral reefs.
