Abstract

The Authority is implementing a transformational agenda on gender empowerment that may well serve as an international benchmark for other multilateral, regional and national bodies concerned with deep-ocean science and the realisation of women’s rights. This discussion outlines how the Authority is committed to working with the World Maritime University–Sasakawa Global Institute in an international research programme sponsored by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans of Canada that is aimed at focusing the spotlight on the empowerment of women scientists so that it becomes a central pillar of the UN Decade of Ocean Science. Such an approach accords fully with the Charter of the United Nations, as well as the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, thus adding fresh and badly-needed momentum towards the attainment of gender equality objectives in marine scientific research and ocean affairs.
