UN Ocean Decade South Atlantic Workshop, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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 in May, in Denmark, a South Atlantic Workshop will be convened 25-27 November, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, hosted by the Brazilian Ministry of Defense/Navy with the scientific support of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications and co-organized with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) as coordinating body for the Decade.

This event will provide a forum to gather approximately 120 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.

TRIATLAS partners from the South Atlantic regions are encouraged to attend!
