JPI Oceans Side-Event to the UN Ocean Conference

On 7 June JPI Oceans organises the briefing "Multilateral Science-Policy Partnerships: Generating the Evidence to Underpin SDG Implementation" as a side event to the UN Ocean conference in New York.

To set the ocean on a path of sustainable development and preserve the essential ecosystem goods and services it provides, humankind does need to bring about a step-change in the way it understands and manages the marine environment. A step-change that can only be achieved if rooted in a sound scientific evidence base for decision-making.  

In order to enable informed and effective decision-making and governance of the ocean, international collaboration between ministries and research funding agencies to jointly fund new knowledge generation as well as efficient and effective science-policy mechanisms are of fundamental importance, as prominently recognised in Sustainable Development Goal 14: “Increase scientific knowledge, develop research capacity and transfer marine technology, […] in order to improve ocean health and to enhance the contribution of marine biodiversity to the development of developing countries”. 
 
The objective of this science-policy briefing is to deliver input to Partnership Dialogue 6 by presenting multilateral partnerships for providing scientific evidence to support the sustainable development of the oceans, by showcasing cutting-edge examples of research to support ocean governance, as well as by discussing the future role of science for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
 
The event will take place at the Permanent Mission of Germany to the United Nations, 871 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY between 15.30 and 18.00.
