We seek to strengthen systems (funding, mentorship, recognition, learning, communication and evaluation) that address the challenges of the Ocean Decade and support the capacity to deliver ocean science and leadership, which is central to healthy oceans and sustainable development. This will proactively advance the integration of capacity sharing in the design and implementation of priorities for the Ocean Decade.

Our project focuses on collectively scaling up support of local leaders in their efforts to develop learning exchanges between stakeholders such as fishers, youth, community members, and new emerging leaders in ocean conservation.

We are extremely excited to work with our project partners below to help achieve the Ocean Decade’s goals by 2030:

Start Date: 08/06/2021
