How UK research can contribute to the UN Ocean Decade
In October 2020 the Royal Society Global Environmental Research Committee (GERC) hosted a workshop to scope and prioritise UK research contributions to the UN Ocean Decade. The four priority research areas emerged as:
- Connecting the deep sea to society to support sustainable development
- Accelerating participatory solutions to the rapid changes facing coral coast ecosystems and dependent communities
- Improving our capacity to understand and predict sea level rise and its extremes to enable sustainable adaptation
- Understanding, forewarning and mitigating the impacts of multiple pressures on marine ecosystems and the services they provide
