The Cluster’s mission is to use the results of multidisciplinary research to predict the future of the Earth’s marine
environment and to engage in developing solutions in support of sustainable ocean development. This includes understanding changes
to the past and present ocean as well as the interaction between society and the ocean in regard to marine resources, services and
risks. This Mission carries with it an obligation to develop and assess scientifically-based global and regional ocean governance
options, including their legal, economic and ethical aspects. The Cluster uses innovative and suitable means to exchange its findings
