MUN Research Week Discussion Panel

The global ocean plays a central role in Earth’s life support system, yet humanity struggles to meet The UN Sustainable Development Goal 14 to “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.” Research leaders from the Ocean Frontier Institute will lead an interactive discussion on how our transdisciplinary research unites natural scientists, social scientists, and engineers to help understand a changing ocean and to use that knowledge to develop more sustainable resource benefits and more effective governance in fisheries, aquaculture, marine ecosystems, and coastal communities. Our focus on the Northwest Atlantic, a global hotspot for climate change and the engine of the Newfoundland and Labrador economy, will provide critical input to the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development, which will begin in 2021. Through short presentations and an interactive discussion, we will discuss how ocean research can support sustainable ocean development.
