On Thursday June 30th 2022, Dr. Jan Newton (WOAC Co-Director, Senior Principal Oceanographer at UW Applied Physics Laboratory and UW affiliate Professor of oceanography) moderated an in-person panel discussion at the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon entitled “Ocean Acidification: Co-designing data connections to underserved communities for equitable outcomes.”

This in-person UN side event highlights how global programs – such as the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network’s UN programme Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS) and the Nippon Foundation’s Ocean Nexus Center at UW – can give visibility to local voices, especially those of Indigenous, Small Island Developing States and other underserved communities that depend on ocean-based economies for their survival.
