The Ocean Conference, was co-hosted by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, at a critical time, when the world is seeking to address many of the deep-rooted problems of our societies laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic and which will require major structural transformations and common shared solutions that are anchored in the SDGs.

The 2022 UN Ocean Conference brought together all Ocean stakeholders to discuss knowledge-based solutions to protect and revitalize this giant blue ecosystem.  The overarching theme of the Conference was “Scaling up ocean action based on science and innovation for the implementation of Goal 14: stocktaking, partnerships and solutions” and the message was clear: “We must conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.”  

To mobilize action, the Conference sought to propel much needed science-based innovative solutions aimed at starting a new chapter of global ocean action.  The ECOP Programme was involved at many level, visit the event page to revisit the official side events and ECOP mixers that took place in Lisbon, 27 June – 1 July, 2022
