One Planet, One Ocean – IOC Proposal for an International Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)

17 March 2017

The IOC has written to all Member States advising of a proposal for an "International Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development" to address key components of SDG14.

Dr Canterford has forwarded this correspondence on to a number of agencies/officers for information. An IOC handout provides general information.

This item is likely to be a significant agenda item at the forthcoming IOC Assembly meeting (in late June 2017 in Paris, France) and as such NMSC members will be invited to provide comment at that time.
