Southern Ocean Decade & Polar Data Forum Week 2021

Southern Ocean Decade & Polar Data Forum Week 2021

Event date: 20-24 September 2021

The Southern Ocean Task Force and the Organizing Committee of Polar Data Forum IV are pleased to announce that the Southern Ocean Decade & Polar Data Forum Week 2021 will be convened on 20-24 September 2021. This event will be dedicated to the 2nd Southern Ocean Regional Workshop for the UN Ocean Decade and the 4th edition of the Polar Data Forum.

2nd Southern Ocean Regional Workshop – 20-22 September

In the framework of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, the Southern Ocean Community engaged in a stakeholder-oriented process to develop the Southern Ocean Action Plan to provide a framework for Southern Ocean stakeholders to formulate and develop concrete activities that support the Decade vision.

Based on the First Southern Ocean Regional Workshop, this 2nd volume of the Southern Ocean contribution to the UN Ocean Decade will provide a space to gather ocean key stakeholders to further discuss and prioritize the Southern Ocean challenges, and identify tangible actions and deliverables to overcome these as a community.

The Workshop will combine a conference style meeting in support of knowledge exchange, with a public consultation approach that will build up to the development of the Final Southern Ocean Action Plan for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.

Polar Data Forum IV – 20-24 September

Polar Data Forum (PDF) is a place where polar data holders get together and make more use of data. The Forum has two main components: the Conference, where the border between funding, policy and data is explored through presentations and posters (23-24 September); and Workshop Sessions & Hackathons, where the Polar Data Community opens the dialogue to make progress on their shared objectives (20-22 September).

Based on the activities and discussions from PDF III, and particularly, on a workshop focused on marine data, this edition of the Polar Data Forum will put the focus on polar oceans. This also enables the Forum to be aligned with the launch of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
