Abstract/Summary

The UK Overseas Territories (UKOTs) constitute a small land area with large marine provinces, which collectively represent the 5th largest marine estate in the world. Extending from the polar ocean to tropical seas, they reflect a highly diverse range of environments and people. Focusing on six key regions (Polar, Pacific, South Atlantic, Mediterranean, Caribbean and Mid-Atlantic, and Indian Ocean), more than 60 leading experts from all 14 UKOTs prioritised and highlighted their most important ecological and societal climate challenges.
