Regional workshop - Mediterranean - UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)

Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UN Agency

Venice/ITA

This event will provide a forum to gather ocean leaders/champions/key stakeholders to further discuss and prioritize the issues identified at the First Global Planning Meeting.

Following the First Global Planning Meeting, held in May 2019 (Denmark), a Mediterranean Workshop will be convened 21-23 January 2020, in Venice (Italy) hosted by the Italian Oceanographic Commission and co-organized with the IOC-UNESCO, the European Commission, the United Nations Environment/Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP) and the Mediterranean Science Commission.

This event will provide a forum to gather ocean leaders/champions/key stakeholders to further discuss and prioritize the issues identified at the First Global Planning Meeting. Plenary and working groups will facilitate regional, interdisciplinary discussions across sectors (such as: ocean science and technology; ocean policy and sustainable development; business and industry; NGOs and civil society; donors and foundations) to identify concrete deliverables and partnerships to meet the Decade's six societal objectives.

The Mediterranean Workshop offers a crucial opportunity to co-design mission-oriented research strategies in line with the 2030 Agenda and the Plan of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment and Coastal Areas, focusing on Mediterranean countries needs and priorities in terms of transforming knowledge systems; accelerating transfer of technology; enabling training and education; and fostering science-policy dialogues.

The Mediterranean Workshop will aim to identify:
-Tailor the Decade goals by addressing knowledge and technology gaps for unlocking the Mediterranean Sea potential;
-Consolidate the Mediterranean blue identity as a hotspot of innovation for environmental protection and sustainable development;
-Enhance cooperation opportunities, focusing on blue capacity-development and training;
-Structure regional leaderships to address Mediterranean Sea key priorities in the Decade roadmap;
-Promote continuous dialogue among scientists, policy makers, industry, NGOs and civil society;
-Consider best practices and other regional initiatives and meetings to be aligned with the Decade.

This workshop will be part of a continued global dialogue throughout 2019 and 2020 via conference side-events, further thematic workshops and the Decade Online Community Platform to inform the planning of the Decade.

The Decade of Ocean Science is an inclusive and truly global initiative, and broad engagement will be key to success.  Please, express your interest to participate in the Mediterranean workshop by clicking here.
