The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) aims at the development of good science to ensure the conservation of the ocean, the sustainability of its uses and the protection of ocean health. Nevertheless, there is no common understanding of what “ocean health” could encompass under the Decade, and definitions in the […]
On 1st November 2021, the One Ocean Hub organised a roundtable to bring together UN bodies and researchers from different disciplines on the climate/ocean nexus.

Explore where we work
The Ocean covers over 70% of our planet. It connects communities, countries and cultures in space and time.
Our research in Namibia seeks to learn from people who rely on the ocean, in order to understand the pressing challenges facing marine ecosystems and ensure that the blue economy supports sustainable ‘blue’ communities.
The Hub researchers are exploring some of the deep-sea ecosystems in the South Atlantic, and connecting researchers working in this region, so that we can better understand their value and ensure sustainable use for generations to come.
The One Ocean Hub brings together five interconnected research programmes to support more integrated, evidence-based and inclusive responses to the multiple threats facing the ocean. Threats that include plastics and climate change.
The One Ocean Hub aims to transform our response to the urgent challenges facing our ocean. Its research seeks to bridge current disconnections in law, science and policy and integrate governance frameworks to balance multiple ocean uses with conservation.
