We’re proud to announce that we have just published our first issue of a series of policy briefs on topics at the heart of the Ocean University Initiative.
Written by Anne-France Didier, Special Adviser for Regional and Local Governance and Co-ordinator for SDG14 at the French Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition, and Kumi Kitamori, Head of Division Green Growth & Global Relations at the Environment Directorate of OECD, it has been directed by Laura Recuero Virto, our very own Research coordinator.
This policy brief explains the role of Sustainable Development Goal 14 on the Ocean and points to the related major initiatives of the United Nations through a short interview with Vladimir Ryabinin, Executive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission. It sets out the relevance of indicators for monitoring the SDG 14 agenda, illustrates progress in this area globally and nationally in France and South Africa, goes over certain coordination challenges and highlights future area of research.
A French version is already in the works and should be released very soon.
