David Obura works on coral diversity, climate change and coral reef resilience, including social resilience and adaptation. Dr. Obura chairs the IUCN SSG Coral Specialist Group. His earlier collaboration with the University of Cape Town explored the hypothesis of a high coral diversity region in the northern Mozambique Channel, which led to an initiative to secure the ecosystem services and natural assets of this region against climate change and growing human demands.
