UN Ocean Decade Endorsement
The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science is a framework to enhance collaboration and delivery of projects focused on creating ‘an ocean we want’. The Decade Actions are projects that are collectively working in all ocean basins, strengthening the global momentum for ocean knowledge-based solutions.
The programme has endorsed an action by Kelp Forest Foundation and the University of Cambridge. Our research project, “Offshore kelp cultivation as a carbon sink”, is being recognised as a project that enhances knowledge of the ocean, necessary to achieve sustainable development. In this recent round, the UN Ocean Decade has endorsed 35 Decade Actions that are focused on the generation of qualitative and quantitative ocean knowledge to inform the development of solutions to contribute to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Our action is a collaborative research project with several research institutions including University of Cambridge, KAUST (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology), International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), ETH Zürich, University of Bremen and University of Namibia to understand and quantify the potential role of (cultivated) kelp as a carbon sink.
