Connect with Oceans (Public)
Belmont Forum, Future Earth and JPI Oceans co-branded the Collaborative Research Action on Transdisciplinary Research for Ocean Sustainability (https://www.belmontforum.org/cras#oceans2018).
This Collaborative Research Action (CRA) brought together researchers and other expertise across the globe to innovate solutions to accelerate the sustainable use of oceans and minimize the effects of global change.
Research contributes to the overall challenge of ocean sustainability, with the UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development) as the overall framework. (https://sdgs.un.org/sites/default/files/2021-07/SDG_report_2021_Goal%2014.png)
Because the challenge is complex, there is a need for integrated, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approaches, bringing together natural and social sciences, as well as policymakers, resource managers, industries, citizens and other societal partners. Research consortia shall address one or both of the following topics:
Topic 1 – Pathways toward sustainable and equitable use of oceans
Topic 2 – Accounting for and minimizing impacts of global change
