9:00-10:30 (Conference Room B in the UN Conference Building)
Synergies, trade-offs, and co-benefits have implications for policy discussions on how to achieve progress on SDG14. Together with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Future Earth Ocean Knowledge Action Network, and the Cluster of Excellence “The Future Ocean” this side event aims to outline a framework for organising actions around ocean issues, particularly for less developed states. These interrelationships can be used as a tool for dialogue between policy and scientific communities working on ocean, with a particular focus on human health and well-being that can support local communities that rely on ocean ecosystems. This event will highlight the conclusions and recommendations of the newly launched ICSU report “A Guide to SDG Interactions: from Science to Implementation“.
