Decade Programmes are global or regional in scale and will contribute to the achievement of one or more of the Ocean Decade Challenges. They are long-term (multi-year), interdisciplinary and consist of component projects and potentially enabling activities.
The following programmes are active or interested in activating in the Northeast Pacific region. Clicking on a programme will take you to the UN Ocean Decade website to find out more.

An Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS)
The Observing Air-Sea Interactions Strategy (OASIS) PROGRAMME will provide observational-based knowledge to fundamentally improve weather, climate and ocean prediction, promote healthy oceans, the blue economy, and sustainable food and energy.
Challenger 150 - A Decade to Study Deep-Sea Life
Through supporting the development of new technologies and the expansion of observations, Challenger 150 aims to advance understanding of the diversity, distribution, function and services provided by deep-ocean biota; and to use this new knowledge to educate, inspire, and promote better management and sustainable use of the deep ocean.
Cultural Heritage Framework Programme
The Cultural Heritage Framework Programme (CHFP) provides a framework within which Decade Actions relating to cultural heritage can be encouraged, shared and supported, so that the impacts of such actions in delivering sustainable development are greater together than they would be individually.
Empowering Women for the Ocean Decade
Research findings will identify key barriers and good practice contributing to a proposed Strategy and Action Plan to help deliver equal opportunities for full participation and leadership by women at all levels of ocean science under the Ocean Decade.
Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions (GEOS)
GEOS will develop and deploy a series of equitable, durable, and scalable ocean-based solutions for addressing climate change and Ocean Decade's challenges. GEOS initial projects focus on ocean-based carbon dioxide removal, providing adaptation tools to coastal communities, and improving ocean-based human health.
