Joint Initiative Hosts Meeting to Help Set the Ocean Agenda for the Administration and Congress

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

On February 19-20, 2013, in Washington, DC, the Joint Ocean Commission Initiative (JOCI) convened more than 100 ocean leaders, representing multiple perspectives, to provide input on priority ocean policy, science, and funding actions. JOCI is using input from the meeting to develop a set of recommendations for an ocean agenda that the Obama Administration and Congress should carry out in the next two to four years. JOCI will present its recommendations to the Administration and Congress in early Summer 2013.
