I would like to extend an invitation to participate in a moderated online discussion forum on Ocean Acidification to support the global stakeholder input process toward the convening of the UN SDG 14 Ocean Conference in June later this year in New York. The Conference is being co-hosted by the Governments of Sweden and Fiji. For more information on the Conference please see https://oceanconference.un.org/.
The online discussion forum is seeking to capture your ideas and perspectives on the challenges, approaches, calls for action, and partnerships for implementing Target 14.3 to minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification.
You may make your submissions under any or all of three key questions posed on the forum. The forum opened last week and will continue until 30 March 2017.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
The forum is co-moderated by Kirsten Isensee (IOC-UNESCO), David Osborn (IAEA Environment Laboratories), Bronte Tilbrook (CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-operative Research Centre), and Libby Jewett (NOAA Ocean Acidification Program). If you have trouble registering or posting online, please contact info(at)oceanactionhub.org.
Please feel free to distribute this forum discussion link widely through your networks.
