About the event

The Arctic Ocean Decade Policy-Business-Science-Dialogue is the first of two Arctic Ocean Decade Workshops – preparing for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).

The workshop will provide a forum to gather Arctic leaders and key stakeholders such as scientists, industry, NGOs, policy-makers and foundations. The aim is to identify key ocean policy and sustainable development actions.

The Arctic Ocean Decade Policy-Business-Science-Dialogue offers a crucial opportunity to inform the co-design mission-oriented research strategies in line with the 2030 Agenda focusing on needs and priorities in terms of transforming knowledge systems; accelerating transfer of technology; enabling training and education; and fostering science-policy dialogues special for the Arctic region.

The dialogue will be followed up by a Regional Arctic Ocean Decade Planning Workshop to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, 29 April-1 May 2020. Outcomes of the dialogue in Tromsø will inform the workshop in Denmark and feed into the Decade planning process.
