Ocean Decade planning workshop for the Arctic region


As part of a global consultation process in preparation of the UN Decade, two Arctic workshops will provide opportunities to further discuss, prioritize and formulate proposals for Arctic initiatives to be framed under the UN Decade:

  • Preparing for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) – Arctic Ocean Decade Policy-Business-Science-Dialogue, 29 January 2020, Tromsø, Norway, organized by the Research Council of Norway and Arctic Frontiers; and
  • Regional Arctic Ocean Decade Planning Workshop, 29 April-1 May 2020, Copenhagen, Denmark, organized by the Danish Centre for Marine Research

Combined the two workshops will provide output aligned with the five regional planning workshops defined as part of the consultation phase of the Ocean Decade. 

The Arctic Ocean Decade Policy-Business-Science-Dialogue will provide a forum to gather Arctic leaders and key stakeholders such as scientists, industry, NGOs, policy-makers and foundations. The aim is to identify key ocean policy and sustainable development actions.

The Arctic Ocean Decade Policy-Business-Science-Dialogue offers a crucial opportunity to inform the co-design mission-oriented research strategies in line with the 2030 Agenda focusing on needs and priorities in terms of transforming knowledge systems, accelerating transfer of technology, enabling training and education, and fostering science-policy dialogues special for the Arctic region. EuroGOOS office will be represented by Vicente Fernandez, Science Officer, attending the event.
