Description: With the development of scientific research in recent years, the issue of ocean warming and acidification has been attracting attention internationally from the perspective of policymaking. Especially with regards to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Target 14.3 of Goal 14 mentions the need to “Minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification, including through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels,” establishing the importance of addressing the issues, and highlighting the need for specific adaptation measures. In response to these issues, the Ocean Policy Research Institute of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation will host the “International Symposium on Ocean Acidification -Dialogues between scientists and stakeholders-” (tentative). The symposium will aim to share knowledge of current situations on ocean warming and acidification, consider adaptation measures needed in future including enhancement and networking of monitoring methods, and conduct discussions on policy in the field of ocean science.
