The Oceans Conference opens a new chapter in global action for the oceans.
Jointly organised by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, it aims to use science and innovation to deliver the solutions needed to achieve the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, including the goal of sustainable ocean protection.
Scientific knowledge is unanimous: human activities are posing unprecedented threats to the ocean. Its health and ability to sustain life will only worsen as the world’s population increases and human activities expand.
The devastating effects of climate change, food insecurity, disease and pandemics, biodiversity loss, economic inequality and geopolitical conflict are already visible and compel us to act now to protect the state of our ocean.

One, two, two and a half... only a few degrees more. But in concrete terms, should we be worried about these few extra degrees? What changes can global warming bring about?
World Oceans Day on 8 June 2021 was an opportunity for the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and Ifremer (Institut Français de Recherche pour l'Exploitation de la MER) to mobilise the French scientific community around a new PPR (Programme Prioritaire de Recherche) targeting the ocean-climate ecosystem.
From next September, Ifremer (Institut Français de Recherche pour l’Exploitation de la MER) will set up a new Stakeholder Committee (CPP).
What if the health crisis could reintroduce science and scientific debate at the heart of society ?
