Following the first Ocean Decade Foundations Dialogue held in Copenhagen in February of 2020, a report has been prepared highlighting how Foundations can fill multiple roles throughout the Decade.

Through the Decade’s framework to convene stakeholders from diverse sectors, Foundations can support a well-functioning, productive, resilient, and sustainable ocean. They are able to take risks and explore sensitive or emerging issues to address the Ocean Decade Challenges.

Foundations can support this work through mobilizing resources, expanding communications and outreach, and engaging their networks, becoming both facilitators and ambassadors of the Decade.
