Over the last 30 years, the world has lost half of its coral reefs: battered by over-fishing, pollution, and unsustainable coastal development, coral reefs are now at the frontline of climate change. These reefs, which only cover 0.2% of ocean surface, host 30% of marine biodiversity.

Critical Aspects of Sustainability

Economic development and human progress have led to a proliferation of manufactured chemicals and materials made from limited resources found in nature(i.e., minerals and metals,petroleum-based productsand natural gas). Long-term sustainability requires consideration of the availability of specific natural resources, energy, and water usage. NSF continues to support efforts that seek to improve the efficiency with which natural resources are used to meet human needs for products and services.
