Palau

April 13 and 14, 2022

The Republic of Palau will host the seventh Our Ocean Conference. The UN Ocean Conference will take stock of progress towards Goal 14 of the 2030 Agenda and highlight how ocean science and innovation can be the gateway to implementing Agenda 2030.

‘Local to Global Action for Our Ocean’ will draw on Palau’s rich tradition as an ocean society to set a course towards a sustainable ocean economy that all of humanity will depend on.

Our Ocean 2022 marks the first time that the Our Ocean Conference will be hosted by a small island developing state. The conference will draw particular attention to islander perspectives to highlight how safeguarding our ocean is essential for achieving sustainable development.

The conference will convene some 500 participants, including established and emerging ocean leaders from government, business, academia and civil society, to build new partnerships to catalyse global action for our ocean and reverse the ocean health crisis.

Our Ocean 2020 will focus on six thematic areas for interactive dialogue and new robust and ambitious scaled up commitments:
1. Climate Change
2. Marine Pollution – A Clean Ocean
3. Sustainable Blue Economies
4. Marine Protected Areas
5. Sustainable Fisheries
6. Maritime Security
