JPI Oceans side-event to the UN Ocean Conference, New York, USA, 7 June 2017
On 7 June 2017, JPI Oceans organises the briefing "Multilateral Science-Policy Processes: Generating the Evidence to Underpin SDG Implementation" as a side event to the UN Ocean conference in New York.
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 present multilateral processes for providing scientific evidence to support the sustainable development of the oceans, to showcase cutting-edge examples of research to support ocean governance, as well as to discuss the future role of science for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
