The Ocean Wave takes place at a time when the level of threat facing the ocean is unprecedented. This year and the next is crucial for international ocean action. A momentum is building and we now have a convergence of opportunities for making the right decisions and taking the right actions through a string of high-level ocean events in the coming months. The global community needs to ensure that we use these opportunities to share our knowledge and experiences, identify the solutions and commit to action for a clean, healthy and productive ocean.
