Summary

7th Plenary

Description

Humanity has been waging a war against nature and the world's ocean — the lungs of our planet and the main source of food for more than a billion people — is now facing a multidimensional crisis driven by climate change, overfishing, habitat loss and pollution.

The UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon, Portugal, 27 June to 1 July 2022, co-organized by the Governments of Portugal and Kenya, is expected to deliver science-driven innovations and solutions to respond to this environmental emergency.

With the expected participation of over 5000 ocean advocates, including world leaders, entrepreneurs, youth, influencers and scientists, the Conference will ignite fresh impetus for advancing Sustainable Development Goal 14 – at the heart of global action to protect life under water. Concrete measures will be adopted to build ocean resilience and more sustainable communities, underpinned by a new wave of commitments — following the over 1,300 commitments made at the 2017 Ocean Conference — to restore the ocean's health.
