Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability – OARS (video)

The Global Ocean Acidification Observation Network (GOA-ON)’s programme, “Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability” (OARS) is endorsed as an Ocean Decade Action for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). OARS will address Sustainable Development Goal indicator 14.3.1 and will further develop the science of OA.

A new OARS video launched at the UN Decade Forum featuring the OARS co-leads Dr Jan Newton, Prof Steve Widdicombe, and Kirsten Isensee as well as Dr Libby Jewett, Director of the NOAA Ocean Acidification Program and one of the lead authors of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report. The video highlights the effects of ocean acidification on the marine environment and the actions needed to better understand, adapt and mitigate these effects that OARS will undertake in the next few years. Dr Katy Soapi (The Pacific Community, GOA-ON Pacific Islands and Territories OA Hub co-chair), Dr Sheck Sherif (GOA-ON OA Africa Hub co-chair) and Dr Abed El Rahman Hassoun (GOA-ON Mediterranean OA Hub co-chair) spoke from their regional perspectives and joined the call to all interested researchers, stakeholders and decision makers to join OARS!
