In October 2013, the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) launched the “Local, National, and Regional Climate Change (LNRCC) Programme to build upon, expand, and deepen understanding of vulnerability to the impacts of climate change as well as to identify practical adaptive responses at local (Abu Dhabi), national (UAE), and regional (Arabian Peninsula) levels. The design of the Programme was stakeholder-­‐driven, incorporating the perspectives of over 100 local, national, and regional stakeholders in shaping 12 research studies across 5 strategic themes. The “Marine Biodiversity and Climate Change” study within this Programme aims to assess the potential impacts and the vulnerability of marine biodiversity and fisheries in the Arabian Gulf to climate change.
