UN Decade of Ocean Science Regional Consultation Workshop for Africa and the Adjacent Island States
In 2017, the UN General Assembly proclaimed 2021-2030 the “United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The upcoming decade represents a rare opportunity for the ocean community to join efforts, mobilize resources and create innovative partnerships to create a clean, healthy, resilient and safe ocean that is both sustainable and productive.
The Western Indian Ocean region’s contributions will be vital to ensuring the WIO region’s needs and contributions are captured adequately in the consultation phase for the decade. As such, UNEP/ Nairobi Convention, IOC-UNESCO, WIOMSA, and KMFRI are assisting with the organization of the Africa Regional Consultation for the decade, to be held in Nairobi from 27-29 January.
