Save our Ocean, Protect our Future
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.
TheUN 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 advancingSustainable Development Goal14– 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.
The Ocean Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, comes at a critical time as the world is seeking to address many of the deep-rooted problems of our societies laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic and which will require major structural transformations and common shared solutions that are anchored in the SDGs. To mobilize action, the Conference will seek to propel much needed science-based innovative solutions aimed at starting a new chapter of global ocean action.
In accordance with General Assembly resolution 73/292, at the opening of the Conference consideration will be given to all procedural and organizational matters, including the adoption of the rules of procedure and the agenda, the election of the two Presidents of the Conference, the election of officers, the establishment of subsidiary organs, as appropriate, the appointment of the members of the Credentials Committee, arrangements for the preparation of the report of the Conference and other matters.
The opening plenary will also hear statements by the Presidents of the Conference, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, the President of the General Assembly, the President of the Economic and Social Council and the Secretary-General of the Conference.
