High Level Scientific Conference

From COP21 towards the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development

10 – 11 September 2018

Since COP21, new knowledge has enhanced our understanding of the interactions between ocean, climate and biodiversity.

The conference aims at synthesizing recent scientific progress on ocean and climate interplays; evaluating the latest ocean-climate trends within the context of increased ocean action; and reflecting on ways to move “from science to action”.

Organized around four sessions, the event will bring together scientists from multiple disciplines, civil society, businesses, decision-makers and UN entities, to share their expertise on ocean and climate related issues.
