The Living Oceans Foundation joins CORDAP Advisory Board

Written by

Following a unanimous decision made by the representatives of the G20 nations of the Initiative Governance Committee (IGC) of the Global Coral Reef Research and Development Accelerator Platform (CORDAP), the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation (KSLOF) has been appointed as a new member of the IGC Advisory Committee of CORDAP. The G20 is an international forum for the governments and central bank governors from 19 countries and the European Union (EU). The G20 holds annual summits where leaders discuss a wide range of issues, including global economic growth, financial regulation, trade, climate change, and development. Additionally, various working groups and ministerial meetings convene throughout the year to address specific topics and prepare recommendations for the leaders’ summit.

CORDAP was launched in 2020 by the G20 to fast-track research and development (R&D) solutions to save the world’s corals. CORDAP brings together the best minds worldwide, in a transdisciplinary approach, to accelerate international research and development to supply the technologies and innovations required to secure a future for corals and reefs. 

As a global community, we will need to scale-up conservation and restoration efforts to make an impact on the scale needed to make a difference, and this is why KSLOF is very excited to work with CORDAP. We know what we must do to solve the coral reef crisis. But we don’t yet have the science and technology needed to save our reefs. CORDAP is helping to bridge that gap by supporting the technological innovation needed. The Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation is committed to this effort and is honored to contribute by joining CORDAP’s Initiative Governing Committee (IGC). KSLOF is very excited about this opportunity, and we look forward to our new partnership with CORDAP with fantastic new programs on the horizon!
