Global cooperation


Sustainability of marine ecosystems through global knowledge networks

​​​​​​​SmartNet established a global knowledge network (GKN) for ocean science by strengthening and expanding the collaboration of ICES, PICES and their partner organizations. It will support and leverage ICES/PICES member countries' activities related to UN Decade of Ocean Science​ (UNDOS), by emphasizing areas of mutual research interest including climate change, fisheries and ecosystem-based management, social, ecological and environmental dynamics of marine systems, coastal communities and human dimensions, and communication and capacity development. 

It also incorporates strategies to facilitate UNDOS cross-cutting inclusivity themes relating to gender equality, early career engagement, and involvement of indigenous communities and developing nations in the planning and implementation of joint activities.
