Since its establishment in 1994, ACCA21 has promoted the implementation of China’s Agenda 21 and related priority projects, and established good cooperative relations with government departments, research institutions, social organizations, and companies in promoting national sustainable development strategy.
ACCA21 will support the Ocean Decade by:

- Supporting capacity building through seminars and workshop focused on the seven Decade Outcomes: 1. Marine microplastics (A clean ocean); 2. Marine protected area (A healthy and resilient ocean); 3. Marine science and technology achievement transformation (A productive ocean); 4. Ocean observation and prediction (A predicted ocean); 5. Maritime emergency rescue (A safe ocean); 6. Marine data information (An accessible ocean); 7. Marine sustainability (An inspiring and engaging ocean)
- Establishing the Ocean Decade Science and Technology Innovation Policy Platform. This think tank will gather hundreds of experts in the field of sustainable development and climate change, as well as academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering
