Event Description: 


The 2024 Ocean Decade Conference

will be part of an entire


from 8 to 12 April 2024


"Join us for an unforgettable experience during the Ocean Decade Week in Barcelona, Spain! As part of this incredible event, we are excited to offer a series of partner-led and partner-resourced Satellite Events over the course of five days prior to, and in the sidelines of, the Conference."

These events will be action-oriented and contribute in a tangible way to one or more of the Conference outcomes.

Around 80 off-site Satellite Events will take place in over a dozen venues throughout Barcelona in the two days leading up to the Conference. 

The Conference will feature over 50 on-site Satellite Events at the Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB) on 10-12 April during breakfast, lunch and evening slots. They will be open to all Conference participants.


CLIVAR is supporting and participating in two satellite events: 

Ocean-based solutions to mitigate climate change impacts with Africa as a demonstration

The workshop will be hosted by the Ocean to climate Seamless Forecasting system (OSF) Programme together with its partners, harnessing the collaborative efforts within the framework of the Ocean Decade to advance understanding and prediction of the ocean-climate nexus. It seeks to showcase main achievements from 2021 to 2024, build capacity, foster dialogue and promote cooperation among diverse stakeholders in the pursuit of ocean-based solutions for climate change, by highlighting cutting-edge advancements such as low-cost ocean and climate observation technology and new generation ocean and climate models.

Co-designing ocean observing system for better societal services – Pan tropics and basin use areas

Building a transformative and solutions-oriented ocean observing system is critical to the success of the Ocean Decade. The design of such systems should follow the principles of co-design, working with stakeholders across the value chain and integrating their needs into the process. We will discuss these principles and observational needs of (a) a pan-tropical observing system; (b) a suite of “exemplars” including boundary currents, tropical cyclones, and marine carbon. Our event will commence with a short presentation followed by a “speed-dating” session. Attendees will meet with focus-area leadership to discuss regional involvement and collaborations from across the value-chain.

Date: April 11th, 2024

Time: 13:15-14:45 (GMT+1)

Venue: Southern Ocean Room (133+134), Barcelona International Convention Centre (CCIB)
