Marine issues to get high priority in next decade 2021-2030 designated as Decade of Ocean Science
08 December 2017 Current Affairs: The oceans consist of 70% of the earth. But unfortunately, most of us are little aware of ocean politics, coastal security.

Next decade may bring a change to the scenario as it has been dedicated to Ocean Science. United Nations today designated the years 2021 to 2030 as the ‘Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development’.

The decision has been taken to boost international coordination and cooperation in research and scientific programmes for the better management of ocean and coastal zone resources and reducing maritime risks.

The UN Education, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will be leading the campaign.
