SESSION 3: WHAT KIND OF SCIENCE ARCHITECTURE IS REQUIRED TO DELIVER RELEVANT SCIENCE TO POLICY?

Panel Discussion

Starting from existing science-policy interfaces for the ocean, including the World Ocean Assessment and the Regular Process, IPCC and IPBES, this session will discuss options for strengthening the institutional dimension, e.g., the need for sustained funding of constant monitoring activities, integration of data platforms, streamlining policy-relevant scientific assessments of the state of the ocean and specific issue areas with regard to ocean health.
