UNESCO calls on UN high-level sustainable development forum to boost knowledge-led actions for the ocean

Custodian agency responsible for tracking key SDG 14 indicators on ocean acidification (14.3.1) and scientific collaboration (14.a.1), UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission called on governments and stakeholders to boost knowledge generation to fill action gaps on the road to 2030.

Themed around “Building back better from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while advancing the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”, and under the auspices of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the 2022 High Level Political Forum (HLPF) is taking place on 5-15 July at the UN Headquarters in New York, as a high-level dialogue and review of Member States’ progress in achieving aspects of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development related to education, gender equality, and ocean conservation.

The 2022 HLPF is reviewing specifically progress on achieving the Sustainable Development Goals 4 (quality education), 5 (gender equality) and 14 (life below water), with a strong showing of the international ocean community fresh off the 2022 UN Ocean Conference, which took place in Lisbon from 27 June to 1 July, and yielded an important call to action for accelerating the pace of action for a healthier ocean via the Lisbon Declaration.
