Dr. Ellen Pikitch briefs the United Nations on the results of the Rome 10 x 20 Conference

Dr. Ellen Pikitch, Professor and Executive Director of the Institute for Ocean Conservation Science at Stony Brook University, briefed a diplomatic audience at United Nations on Tuesday, March 22, 2016. Missions from countries from around the world attended, and were welcomed by Ambassador Inigo Lambertini, Deputy Permanent Representative of Italy to the United Nations.

Dr. Pikitch was the Scientific Coordinator for a recent conference in Rome – known as the 10x20 Conference – the results of which provide a “roadmap” for achieving the UN target of conserving and protecting 10% of the world's oceans by 2020. In Rome, a group of 25 international scientists agreed upon 34 points of consensus on marine protected area science, governance, and financing. Dr. Pikitch summarized highlights of these results to the United Nations community in New York, hoping to expand interest among Member States as each looks to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda.

Written remarks by Dr. Pikitch at the briefing can be found here.
