International Alliance to Combat Ocean Acidification


The Alliance brings together jurisdictions across the globe to combat ocean acidification and changing ocean conditions as an immediate and critical threat to coastal economies and ocean ecosystems. The Alliance invites government and affiliate members at all stages of learning about and responding to ocean acidification.

The OA Alliance was established in response to impacts of ocean acidification on coastal communities and livelihoods. Together, we are:

  • supporting governments to take meaningful actions to address changing ocean conditions,
  • pushing for inclusion of strong ocean protection provisions in international climate agreements and other relevant frameworks; and
  • creating a coalition of governments and partners elevate the visibility and importance of ocean acidification in public discourse and policy development.
