Project Summary

The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) (‘Ocean Decade’) represents an opportunity to rally global scientific and societal capacities towards addressing pressing challenges for sustainable development. While the global ocean is continuous, sustainable development requires meeting highly complex regional challenges spanning environmental, economic, social political and legal dimensions. The Marine Working Group (MWG) of IASC participated in the development of the Arctic Action Plan as a contribution to the development of actions in support of the Ocean Decade. During this workshop the MWG will develop a document of key research priorities to be addressed, which will ensure alignment between UNDOS and IASC strategic goals, and facilitate progress towards the societal goals identified for the Ocean Decade
