2020 was an extraordinary year for the ocean in the truest sense of the word. The beginning of the year was marked with unforeseen optimism for ocean actors across the world. It was pegged as the ‘super year’ for the ocean; the year of major events such as the 2020 UN Ocean Conference, the 15th Conference of Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity, and the 26th Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), in which the ocean would finally achieve full recognition and visibility for its role in sustainable development.
