UN Decade of Ocean Science and the 2nd Indian Ocean Expedition
12.30 – 1.30pm
Wednesday 28 April, 2021
Auditorium, Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre
Speaker: Dr Nick D’Adamo, Head of the UNESCO IOC Perth Programme Office
There are profound challenges facing scientific and user communities in addressing the informational needs and societal responses required to adapt and mitigate to a changing ocean and coupled climate. This applies to the Indian Ocean as a whole and for the globe’s inter-connected Earth systems. The World’s attention on the oceans is experiencing a major renewed focus through the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-30 (www.oceandecade.org), and, closer to Western Australia, also through the Second International Indian Ocean Expedition (www.iioe-2.incois.gov.in).
Dr Nick D’Adamo, Head of the UNESCO IOC Perth Programme Office and Adjunct Member of the Oceans Institute will describe the Office’s IOC coordinated portfolio, tracing a capacity building theme across coupled ocean/climate, biogeochemistry, and ecosystem sciences. The Perth Office’s work connects the interests of Western Australia, Australia, and the wider oceanic sphere.
