The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development began in January 2021. It was proclaimed during the seventy-second session of the United Nations General Assembly in 2017, and for the next decade, until 2030, initiatives with a particular focus on the ocean, a sector with many areas that remain largely unknown, will be pursued with a view to realizing various sustainable development goals (SDGs), especially Goal 14 or SDG14 (Life Below Water).

Marking the start of the Decade of Ocean Science, this collection of initiatives was planned and produced in response to a proposal put forth by this Study Group with the aim of disseminating to the world the ocean science initiatives that have been carried out to date in Japan.
