On 2 November 2017, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO, with the support of the Government of Norway, hosted a side event "Achieving Sustainable Development Goal 14: The Ocean We Need for the Future We Want" during the UNESCO General Conference.

The side event seeked to mobilize more coordinated efforts across nations and sectors for generating new knowledge and understanding of the ocean, and therefore improve management, stewardship and sustainable development of 71% of our planet. It promoted the major efforts by the IOC and many other stakeholders to achieve SDG 14, and to renew the IOC's call for 2021-2030 to become the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
