Later this year (in the second half of 2020), the report on the status of coral reefs of the world will be released (the first global report in 12 years).

The data acquisition and homogenization stage was completed two months ago (April 2020), with the acquisition of 195 datasets from 75 countries. These datasets include more than 1,7500,000 observations of 23 different variables recorded from more than 100,000 transects. The analysis of these data is progressing and will soon be finalised. Several chapters of the report are in preparation.
