The UN Decade of Ocean Science for sustainable development 2021-2030: North Atlantic Workshop

North Atlantic Workshop

The UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to deliver scientific knowledge, foster technological innovation, and build capacity to achieve the 2030 Agenda and reverse the decline of ocean health. This will be a truly global effort based on inclusive partnerships flourishing in a global research and innovation ecosystem. Following the First Global Planning Meeting held last May in Denmark, a North Atlantic Workshop will be convened 6-10 January 2020, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. This event, hosted by Ocean Frontier Institute, is made possible by the financial contribution from Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and co-organized with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) as coordinating body for the Decade. The workshop is aligned with the activities of the trilateral Canada-EU-USA Galway Statement and its Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance that will help support the UN Decade.
