ANNOUNCEMENT: Launch of the Second World Ocean Assessment (WOA II) – 21 April 2021

Launch of the Second World Ocean Assessment (WOA II) – 21 April 2021

The Second World Ocean Assessment (WOA II), the major output of the second cycle of the Regular Process for Global Reporting and Assessment of the States of the Marine Environment, including Socioeconomic Aspects, will be launched on 21 April 2021, in connection with Earth Day 2021 which will be observed on 22 April. It is the newest outcome of the only integrated assessment of the world’s ocean at the global level covering all three pillars of sustainable development.
