60th Anniversary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO and Launch of the Global Ocean Science Report 2020

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2020. Join IOC on 14 December to celebrate this event!

The Commission was created within UNESCO to promote coordinated international research about the global ocean and its various basins, based on the pioneer experiences of the International Geophysical Year (1957-58) and the first International Indian Ocean Expedition.

To mark this special event, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Global Ocean Science Report 2020 (GOSR2020), IOC-UNESCO’s flagship report, which assesses the status and trends in ocean science capacity around the world and charts the possible pathways for the international community to deliver on the sustainable development goals.

Over the past decades, IOC has advanced science and its applications to support sustainable economic and social progress, the basis of peace between nations, and sustainable development. While there has been progress on many fronts and numerous successes, IOC’s mission is ever-so-necessary and urgent in the face of continuous declines in ocean health and in the midst of a planetary crisis.

The 60th Anniversary of IOC is an opportunity to take stock of what has been achieved and look forward to a UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) filled with challenges and opportunities.
