Business and policy transformation

The Challenge

By 2030, the world will need to meet the ambition of global goals and targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Global Biodiversity Framework and advance towards the Paris Agreement. Integrating the ocean across all agendas and multilateral processes is key to successfully working towards this ambition as the ocean is essential for humanity’s prosperity and well-being, food security, global economies and jobs, addressing the climate crisis and securing intergenerational equity.
