Ocean Decade Virtual Series - Fostering innovative ocean science partnerships for Small Island Developing States

The Decade will provide a framework for collaborative and participative ocean research, and support better integration of diverse knowledge systems from different science disciplines and ocean communities.

Convened by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) and the Natural Sciences Sector of UNESCO, in partnership with United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS), this virtual session will focus on the importance of partnership-based approaches to ocean science for sustainable development in SIDS.

The session will explore transformative partnerships (including SIDS-SIDS cooperation) required to foster knowledge generation, solution-oriented and transdisciplinary research, and to support innovation.
