In order to enable informed and effective decision-making and governance of the ocean, international collaboration between ministries and research funding agencies to jointly fund new knowledge generation as well as efficient and effective science-policy mechanisms are of fundamental importance. The objective of this science-policy briefing is to present multilateral processes for providing scientific evidence to support the sustainable development of the oceans, to showcase cutting-edge examples of research to support ocean governance, as well as to discuss the future role of science for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
