A United Nations Decade of Ocean Science will help to build a shared information system, based on trustworthy, science-based data, from all parts of the world's ocean.

Peter Haugan
Chair, IOC

The oceans are critical drivers of global climate and weather-related natural hazards. Deeper insights on ocean science, powered by enhanced ocean observing and data sharing systems, will dramatically advance understanding and modelling of the whole earth system and benefit all people, everywhere.

Dr. Sue Barrell
Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology Chief Scientist

The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development is a unique opportunity to engage the ocean science community in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals - globally, regionally and locally.

Dr. Vladimir Ryabinin
Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission and Assistant Director General of UNESCO

Ocean science, supported by capacity development, is essential not only to inform SDG 14 but also other SDGs that have an ocean dimension.

Peter Thomson
UN Special Envoy for the Ocean
