NNA Named an Endorsed Action of the UN Ocean Decade
In 2017, the United Nations (UN) declared 2021-2030 the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (Ocean Decade), recognizing an opportunity to reverse the decline in ocean health while continuing to rely on the ocean for our ever-increasing needs, particularly under a changing climate. The Ocean Decade was officially launched January 1, 2021.
The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) has been an active player in the Ocean Decade, and has submitted five actions for endorsement. All five were accepted, among them Navigating the New Arctic (NNA).
The linked PDF is a resource for NSF staff and researchers (including PIs, postdocs, students, etc.) funded through one of the five NSF Ocean Decade Actions. The document provides context and resources for engagement in the Ocean Decade and will evolve as opportunities within the Ocean Decade change in the coming years.
