With a sick ocean, science is essential to create ‘motivation for action’

8 June 2020

The Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, continues through to 2030, providing an opportunity for nations to work together to generate the scientific expertise needed to keep ocean life safe, and the seas sustainable.

Reminding us that currently the ocean is ailing, and needs better science and data to be successfully managed, the Executive Secretary of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, Vladimir Ryabinin, spoke to UN News about the scientists’ dream of managing the ocean in a way that will help us all live longer and healthier lives.

Mr. Ryabinin sat down with UN News’s Ana Carmo at UN Headquarters in New York, shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.
