Indian Ocean Regional Decade Conference (INCOIS) concludes

The ‘Indian Ocean Regional Decade Conference 2024: Bridging Billions to Barcelona’ concludes today.

Organized as part of the Decade Collaborative Centre for the Indian Ocean Region (DCC-IOR), the conference is a prelude to the Ocean Decade conference scheduled for April this year.

The DCC-IOR collaboration was initially proposed by Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS) in tandem with UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) as a way to align itself to the goals of the overarching UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development framework proclaimed in 2017. The 10-year framework aims to ‘identify, generate and use critical knowledge to manage the ocean sustainably’. It aims specifically address ongoing challenges like maritime pollution, protecting and restoring marine ecosystems and biodiversity to unlocking ocean-based solutions to climate change.
