Decade Programmes

OceanPrediction Decade Collaborative Centre coordinates Decade Actions related to ocean forecasting and promotes collaboration and co-design at the global level to contribute and support the Ocean Decade. On this page, learn more about some Decade Programmes closely linked with OceanPrediction DCC.

What is the role of a Decade Collaborative Centre

regarding Decade Actions?

Decade Collaborative Centres (DCCs) and Decade Coordination Offices (DCOs) provide dedicated long-term support to coordinate Decade Actions at the regional (i.e. around major Ocean basins) or thematic (i.e. around Decade Challenges) levels. They support Decade Actions with capacity development, communications, tracking of progress and resource mobilisation, as well as catalysing new partnerships and initiatives as part of the Decade. DCCs and DCOs enhance collaboration, promote effective co-design and uptake of science, and optimize the use of resources among the diverse stakeholders that contribute to the Ocean Decade.
