Meet all the endorsed Ocean Decade Actions

One Ocean Hub Research Programme 4

University of Strathclyde - United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK)

Change humanity’s relationship with the ocean, Project, Protect and restore ecosystems and biodiversity, Skills, knowledge and technology for all

OOH RP4 is a strand of the One Ocean Hub, an international programme of transdisciplinary research for sustainable development.

Focusing on the human right to science through capacity building for deep sea science in the South-East Atlantic, OOH RP4 will advance understanding of offshore marine biodiversity through new deepwater surveys in one of the world’s most poorly known ecosystems. It will advance knowledge of environmental changes on deep-sea biodiversity and develop new methods to assess impacts of multiple stressors on deep-water vulnerable habitat-forming species found in Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems and Ecologically or Biologically Significant Areas. It will ensure uptake of science by co-producing novel modelling methods to visualise and predict the distribution of species and habitats and of multiple threats to stimulate various management scenarios.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Challenger 150 – A Decade to Study Deep-Sea Life
