The 2nd Global Planning Meeting will provide a forum to gather approximately 200 thought-leaders/champions/key stakeholders. A mixture of plenary and break-out groups will facilitate international, interdisciplinary discussions across sectors (such as: ocean science and technology; ocean policy and sustainable development; business and industry; NGOs and civil society; donors and foundations) to identify concrete deliverables and partnerships to meet the Decade's six societal objectives.
The outputs of the second Global Planning Meeting for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development will inform the preparation phase of the Decade and the development of the implementation and resource mobilization plan. Over two days of meetings, working groups will identify scientific knowledge gaps and research priorities for the 6 societal goals of the Decade.
