The Ocean Conference



The world has one ocean and its health is critical. Despite its crucial role in contributing to poverty eradication, global food security, human health, economic development and curbing climate change, our ocean is increasingly threatened, degraded or destroyed by human activities, reducing their ability to provide crucial support to our ecosystem.
The Ocean Conference, the first United Nations conference of its kind on the issue, presents a unique and invaluable opportunity for the world, including for UN Member States and System, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations as well as the private sector, media and the general public, to mobilize action to reverse the precipitous decline of the health of the oceans and seas with concrete solutions.
