The GOSR2020 should be part of a transformative process to provide the needed capacity in ocean science in the context of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030), the 2030 Agenda at large, and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14, in particular. It is intended to provide the baseline against which to assess progress in the development of capacity in the area of ocean science in the course of the UN Decade.
Since 2014, the IOC has incorporated as part of its mandate the publication of the Global Ocean Science Report (GOSR). The first edition of the GOSR, launched on 8 June 2017, assessed for the first time the status and trends in ocean science capacity around the world. It offers a global record of how, where, and by whom ocean science is conducted. The GOSR identifies and quantifies the key elements of ocean science at the national, regional and global scales, including workforce, infrastructure and publications. It represents the first collective attempt to systematically highlight opportunities as well as capacity gaps to advance international collaboration in ocean science and technology.br /br /The second edition of the Global Ocean Science Report (GOSR2020) will be published in concomitance with the second United Nations Ocean Conference in 2020, co-convened by Portugal and Kenya and to be held in Lisbon, Portugal. The GOSR2020 should be part of a transformative process to provide the needed capacity in ocean science in the context of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030), the 2030 Agenda at large, and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14, in particular. It is intended to provide the baseline against which to assess progress in the development of capacity in the area of ocean science in the course of the UN Decade. br /br /During the side event, the developments since the 51st session of the IOC Executive Council will be presented, including the launching of the on-line questionnaire and the main results of the second meeting of the Editorial Board.br /
