Vision 2030 White Paper Review Process and Webinars

gedlhdiw0aa5hu5-(1).png

In a leap towards ocean knowledge-based sustainable development, the Vision 2030 process of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 (‘Ocean Decade’) aims to identify a common measure of success for each of the 10 Ocean Decade Challenges on the road to 2030.

Initiated in early 2023, the key outcome of this strategic ambition setting process is a set of White Papers developed collaboratively by the Vision 2030 Working Groups, one for each Decade Challenge. These documents will outline a comprehensive approach to user needs, priority datasets and residual gaps in science, and outline the strategic measures required to fulfill the objectives of each Challenge by the end of the Ocean Decade.

Play your part in building the Ocean Decade roadmap to 2030!

Your contributions will directly influence the revision of these documents. The consolidated version of the White Papers will be presented and discussed during the 2024 Ocean Decade Conference (Barcelona, Spain, 10-12 April 2024).

Access the draft White Papers: Explore the 10 White Papers at this link.

Provide feedback: Share your insights through the dedicated survey between 22 January and 22 February.

Webinars: A direct line to the experts! Mark your calendars for four engaging and interactive webinars featuring the Working Group Co-Chairs, during which you will be able to provide your feedback and participate in open and constructive dialogues on the White Papers. Join the discussion!
