UN Ocean Decade Vision 2030 White Paper Review

Challenges 9 & 10 Public Webinar


The global ocean community is invited to actively participate in the review process of the White Papers developed by the 10 Working Groups of the Vision 2030 process.  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!  


To ensure a diverse and inclusive approach to the Vision 2030 process, active stakeholder participation in the review of the White Papers is crucial. In this regard, we are offering a global platform for the ocean community at large to collectively advance the implementation of the Ocean Decade Challenges.  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).  


Session 4: An Inspiring and Engaging Ocean for All. Challenges 9 and 10 – Capacity Development, Ocean Literacy, and Indigenous and Local Knowledge and Cultural Heritage.
