The Ocean Panel and Ocean Decade: unleashing the full potential of ocean knowledge for a sustainable ocean economy

The High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy (the ‘Ocean Panel’) was established in 2018 by 14 world leaders. The Ocean Panel seeks to change the way the world thinks, acts and feels about the ocean, and inspire policies and actions at the highest levels to catalyse the transition to a sustainable ocean economy. In this spirit, over the last several years the Ocean Panel commissioned a number of peer-reviewed Blue Papers and Special Reports to explore priority ocean issues that have significant policy relevance. This assessment informed the Ocean Panel’s action agenda ‘Transformations for a Sustainable Ocean Economy’ which has a headline commitment to sustainably manage 100% of the ocean by focusing on five key pillars: Ocean Wealth, Ocean Health, Ocean Equity, Ocean Knowledge and Ocean Finance.
