Since COP21, new elements of knowledge came to light, thus enhancing our understanding of the interactions between the ocean, climate, and biodiversity. The well-being of marine ecosystems is recognized as central to combat climate change, highlighting the need to support and develop ocean science.

In view of the launching of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030), the Ocean and Climate Platform and IOC-UNESCO are organizing a High-Level Scientific Conference on 10 and 11 September 2018, at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

The conference aims at synthesizing recent scientific progress on ocean and climate interplays; evaluating the latest ocean-climate trends within the context of increased ocean action, and reflecting on ways to move "from science to action".Organized around four sessions, the event will bring together scientists from multiple disciplines, civil society, businesses, decision-makers and UN entities, to share their expertise on the ocean and climate-related issues.
