This Programme aims to investigate tools and pathways to ensure that gender equality is a central pillar for project partner institutions as well as all UN Ocean Decade Initiatives. Research findings will identify key barriers and good practice contributing to a proposed Strategy and Action Plan to help deliver equal opportunities for full participation and leadership by women at all levels of ocean science under the UN Ocean Decade.
The Programme aims to enhance ongoing collaborations with partners including intergovernmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, government agencies, research institutes, universities, and individuals to deliver substantive research outputs contributing to transformative actions.
