The IOC of UNESCO proposed to the United Nations to proclaim in 2021–2030 an international Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The Decade is the chance to put in place a more complete and sustainable observing system and feed the resulting data into a science-based informed decision-making system allowing increased reliance of our civilization on the ocean, its ecosystem services and, at the same time, preserving ocean health.
