An Ocean of Food

Science and Solutions for Ocean-Climate-Food Challenges

2024 Ocean Decade Conference Satellite Event

The Global Action Network is pleased to co-host with the AIR Centre and Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions for a satellite event at the 2024 UN Ocean Decade Conference.

This event brought together UN Ocean Decade Actions that are working to address Challenge 3: “Sustainably feed the global population”.The event showcased diverse efforts and solutions from blue food-related Decade Actions (based on the Vision WG3 White Paper) and ambitious research conducted under the H2020 ASTRAL project focusing on integrated multi-trophic aquaculture.

This event aimed to reach a greater appreciation of the pivotal role that the ocean and ocean science play in shaping sustainable food systems, and the knowledge, funding, technology, and implementation gaps currently hindering opportunities to strengthen that role.
