Open event for the presentation of the Sixth GCRMN Status of Coral Reefs of the World: 2020 report at the Oceanographic Museum. The GCRMN report is the first global status of coral reefs since 2008 by the GCRMN, and the first based on a quantitative analysis of a global dataset produced from contributions from several hundred scientists and organisations from 73 reef bearing countries. The session will highlight the main trends and regional insights to inform decision-making and strengthen ambition for the protection of coral reef ecosystems.
