Workshop on UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development

Add to Calendar 2019-05-21 05:16:36 2019-05-21 05:16:36 Workshop on UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development The UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 presents a once-in a life time 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 in May, in Denmark, a Pacific Community Workshop will be convened 23-25 July, in Noumea, New Caledonia, hosted by the Pacific Community (SPC) and co-organized with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) as coordinating body for the Decade.  This event will provide a forum to gather approximately 50 ocean leaders/champions/key stakeholders to further discuss and prioritize the issues identified at the First Global Planning Meeting. Plenary and working groups will facilitate regional, interdisciplinary discussions across sectors (such as: ocean science and technology; ocean policy and sustainable development; business and industry; NGOs and civil society; donors and foundations) to identify concrete deliverables and partnerships to meet the Decade's six societal objectives:     The Pacific Community Workshop offers a crucial opportunity to co-design mission-oriented research strategies in line with the 2030 Agenda and the Samoa Pathway, focusing on Small Island Developing States specific needs and priorities in terms of  transforming knowledge systems; accelerating transfer of technology; enabling training and education; and fostering science-policy dialogues.       The Pacific Community Workshop will aim to identify: Knowledge gaps and regional ocean science priorities for the 2030 Agenda and the Samoa Pathway Existing relevant partnerships/networks/initiatives and potential ones/interested partners Priorities in capacity-development/training Priority themes and topics to be addressed by the Decade Other regional initiatives and meetings to be aligned with the Decade       Contact:[email protected]   More information:http://oceandecade.org     Promenade Roger Laroque, Noumea, New Caledonia Pacific Community (SPC) [email protected] UTC public

The UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 presents a once-in a life time 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.

This event will provide a forum to gather approximately 50 ocean leaders/champions/key stakeholders to further discuss and prioritize the issues identified at the First Global Planning Meeting. Plenary and working groups will facilitate regional, interdisciplinary discussions across sectors (such as: ocean science and technology; ocean policy and sustainable development; business and industry; NGOs and civil society; donors and foundations) to identify concrete deliverables and partnerships to meet the Decade's six societal objectives:

 

 

The Pacific Community Workshop offers a crucial opportunity to co-design mission-oriented research strategies in line with the 2030 Agenda and the Samoa Pathway, focusing on Small Island Developing States specific needs and priorities in terms of  transforming knowledge systems; accelerating transfer of technology; enabling training and education; and fostering science-policy dialogues.

 

 

 

The Pacific Community Workshop will aim to identify:

  • Knowledge gaps and regional ocean science priorities for the 2030 Agenda and the Samoa Pathway
  • Existing relevant partnerships/networks/initiatives and potential ones/interested partners
  • Priorities in capacity-development/training
  • Priority themes and topics to be addressed by the Decade
  • Other regional initiatives and meetings to be aligned with the Decade
