Turning the tide to #SaveOurOcean
Our ocean is in serious trouble and the deterioration is increasingly posing a danger to people’s lives, livelihoods and well-being. On 5 June, the Ocean Conference kicks off in New York with a clear purpose of reversing this trend, presenting concrete solutions for healthy oceans and seas. Ahead of the event, UN DESA Voice spoke with Wu Hongbo, Under-Secretary-General of UN DESA and Secretary-General of the Ocean Conference, about some of the urgent actions needed and his hopes for what the event will achieve.
