Lead institution:

Ocean Visions, Georgia Aquarium and Georgia Tech – United States of America (USA)

The primary focus of this DCC is on leading and supporting processes to co-design, develop, test, and ultimately help deliver scalable and equitable ocean-based solutions to mitigate and reverse the effects of climate change (Challenge 5).

To advance this mission, this Collaborative Center will engage with an international set of stakeholders and institutions to further build international understanding and agreement around the suite of new solutions needed to arrest and reverse the ocean-climate crisis. The Center functions as a global think tank and policy center, convening and supporting key experts, sectors and interests to better design and advance ocean-climate innovation agendas globally.

The Center’s strategic initiatives will include increasing international visibility of emerging ocean-climate solutions, building a diverse community of ocean-climate solutionists and catalyzing ocean-climate solutions within the UN Ocean Decade and beyond.

The Center will coordinate across all regions and ocean basins Decade Actions focused on ocean-based solutions to ameliorating climate change, enhancing food security (Challenge 3), and building the climate resiliency of critical marine ecosystems and coastal communities (Challenges 2 and 6).
