Scaling up Ocean Action Based on Science and Innovation for the Implementation of Goal 14: Stocktaking, Partnerships and Solutions

The Ocean Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, comes at a critical time as the world is strengthening its efforts to mobilise, create and drive solutions to realise the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. As one of the first milestones of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ newly launched Decade of Action for the Sustainable Development Goals, the Conference will propel much needed science-based innovative solutions aimed at starting a new chapter of global ocean action.

On Thursday, 30 June at 10 am is the event “Increasing scientific knowledge and developing research capacity and transfer of marine technology”. Click here for more information.

To fill many of the critical knowledge gaps mentioned above, a value chain approach to ocean science is required starting with observations, data collection and management and continuing through to modelling and prediction activities which include demand-driven applications and services for delivery of knowledge.
