United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)
Canada supports the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (Ocean Decade).
The next 10 years will be crucial for life on the planet as we know it.
Climate change, food shortages, epidemics and natural disasters, economic crises and unemployment.
The good news?
We can rely on a powerful source of common solutions to overcome these challenges: Our one shared ocean. Set to become the world’s seventh largest economy by 2030, our ocean regulates climate and provides food and livelihoods for over 3 billion people.
But do we know all our ocean has to offer?
Can we hardness ocean solutions to achieve our global goals by 2030?
The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development brings together scientists, governments, business, philanthropists and NGOs to unlock the science we need for the future we want.
