Meet all the endorsed Ocean Decade Actions

Pacific Ocean Pathways in support of sustainable development: an integrated approach (PACPATH)

Institut de Recherche pour le Développement

Create a digital representation of the Ocean, Develop a sustainable and equitable ocean economy, Increase community resilience to ocean hazards, Project, Skills, knowledge and technology for all, South Pacific Ocean, Sustainably feed the global population, Understand and beat marine pollution, Unlock ocean-based solutions to climate change

PACPATH aims at establishing efficient and sustainable trans-disciplinary processes, methods and networks allowing stakeholders as scientists, public officers and citizens of the Pacific Islands to share common objectives and actions in order to achieve environmental sustainability considering SDG14, and its interlinkage to all other 16 SDGs.

PACPATH aims at creating the conditions to produce sound science, targeted expertise, and reliable data-based information for risked-informed decision making, which however needs to be better targeted and co-constructed with local communities and knowledge-holders. On two pilot sites, Fiji and New Caledonia, we will address the impacts of climate change and other stressors on the ocean environment and ecosystem services, and their consequences for society, economy, and attainment of the SDGs.
