The primary goal of the Global Conference is to address the impact and consequences of climate change on our ocean systems and the consequent influence this has on human security and national security threats. The Conference will also identify and prioritize the knowledge gaps in science and technology which impede understanding, response and adaptation to future threats, and generate a research agenda with human security policy and governance recommendations.
