SURVEY - United Nations “Strengthening the Science-Policy Interface for the Ocean Sustainability”

United Nations Webinar on “Strengthening the Science-Policy Interface for the Ocean Sustainability”  was organized by the Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea of the Office of Legal Affairs of the United Nations, in cooperation with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO. It was held in anticipation of the launch of the Second World Ocean Assessment (WOA II), and in connection with the initial phase of the third cycle (2021-2025) of the Regular Process for Global Reporting and Assessment of the State of the Marine Environment, including Socioeconomic Aspects (“the Regular Process”), and of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), which both started in January 2021.

The event generated great interest. More than 1,500 participants from 143 countries registered for this event. It sparked some very interesting discussions around the importance of ocean science-policy interface, as well as experience and best practices in strengthening it at all levels.

If you have missed parts of the Webinar, or would like to listen again to some presentations, we invite you to look at the full recording of the event which has been made available here on United Nations Web TV. Please feel free to pass this information along to anyone that may be interested.
