Integrating climate adaptation and biodiversity conservation in the global ocean

In the face of climate change, practical efforts to operationalize climate-responsive design and management in the global network of marine protected areas (MPAs) are required to ensure their long-term effectiveness in safeguarding marine biodiversity and ecosystem services. This study reviews progress in integrating climate change adaptation into MPA design and management and provides eight recommendations to expedite this process. Climate-smart management objectives and incentives for dynamic management tools should become the new standard to enhance the climate change responsiveness of the global network of MPAs.
