Ocean Decade

We are actively pursuing United Nations endorsement of the Center in collaboration with the IOC's Decade Coordination Unit.

The Ocean Decade Regional Collaborative Center's role is to make the Ocean Decade a success in our region.

What Is The Ocean Decade?

On 5 December 2017, the United Nations declared that a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (the “Ocean Decade”) would be held from 2021 to 2030. The Ocean Decade provides a common framework to ensure that ocean science can fully support countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Ocean Decade provides a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to create a new foundation across the science-policy interface to strengthen the management of our oceans and coasts for the benefit of humanity.
