Chairman of the Public Council at Roshydromet (the Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring) participates in the 55th session of the UNESCO IOC Executive Committee in Paris.

On June 14, the 55th session of the Executive Board of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO began its work at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France.

Working to achieve the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular SDG 14, the ocean target, has made the Commission more visible to the United Nations system, politicians and the general public. In particular, there has been a significant evolution in the development of two indicators for SDG 14, for which the IOC plays the role of the “UN custodian agency”, helping countries to monitor and report on progress. Indicators of ocean acidification and countries' spending on marine research are now recognized as conceptually sound and ready to be used for data collection worldwide.

“The proclamation by the United Nations General Assembly of the Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 (http://oceandecade.org/) is both a high-level recognition of the critical societal role of ocean science and a unique opportunity for ocean science to go beyond its usual limits and offer society new and transformative solutions for the conservation and sustainable use of marine resources,” emphasizes Vadim Petrov.

All programs and activities coordinated by the Commission are aligned with the objectives of the Decade, finding their own unique way to contribute to what is meant to be “a new social contract for oceanography”, according to Vladimir Ryabinin, UNESCO IOC Executive Secretary.
