Supporting the UN Decade of Ocean Science
Ocean Visions, in partnership with Georgia Aquarium and Georgia Tech, is participating in the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development to extend to a global stage our work to promote and advance transformative ocean solutions that address the ocean-climate crisis.
This contribution is materialized through two connected international initiatives, the Ocean Visions – UN Decade Collaborative Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions (OV-UN DCC) and the Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions (GEOS). The focal areas for both the OV-UN DCC and GEOS include:
Advancing ocean-based solutions to ameliorating climate change
Supporting equitable approaches to build climate resiliency of critical marine ecosystems and coastal communities
Repairing ecosystems to counter the impacts of climate change
Ocean Visions - UN Decade Collaborative Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions
The Ocean Visions – UN Decade Collaborative Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions engages with global stakeholders and institutions to build international understanding and agreement around new solutions that need to be developed, tested, and ultimately deployed to address the ocean-climate crisis. Functioning as a global think tank and policy center, the Center convenes and supports key experts, sectors, and interests to design and advance ocean-climate innovation agendas.
Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions
In close connection and partnership with the Ocean Visions – UN Decade Collaborative Center for Ocean-Climate Solutions, the Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions builds and strengthens international operational networks and innovation ecosystems to connect the disciplines and sectors that are necessary to generate new science and engineering, address technical capacity and opportunity gaps, develop and test innovations and solutions, and create the conditions needed for demployment.
