Ocean Observing for the next Decade

The base to grow sustainable societies

8 June 2022 1:15 – 2:30 PM, UN Headquarters (New York)

In this session, on WorldOceans Day, we will outline how integral ocean information is in responding to key societal challenges, and how the right information can change the outcome for millions of the most vulnerable, especially for many nations with extensive coastal regions, from uncertain and random, to risk assessed and managed, based on ocean science and data.
