At the Summit G7 leaders agreed a shared G7 Nature Compact, a key agreement to address the most urgent international and interconnected challenges of biodiversity loss and climate change. It also recognises the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and endorses the G7 Ocean Decade Navigation Plan.
The Navigation Plan marks the beginning of the G7’s commitment to and support for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). It also establishes a framework through which the G7 will collaborate and advance their collective work on ocean science, ocean observing and ocean action throughout the Ocean Decade.
