Reducing emissions is no longer enough to hold global temperature rise to manageable levels

Bold solutions are needed.

However, such solutions carry risks that must be understood and addressed before scale-up can occur. To meet this challenge, the private and public sector must work together to drive rapid innovation and ensure responsible action. By joining OCIA, you can contribute to meaningful progress in ocean science and engineering that is needed to address climate change and advance ocean and human health.

Increase Awareness and Resources

Through OCIA, you can educate your stakeholders on the ocean’s inextricable connections to the global climate and weather and raise awareness that comprehensive climate solutions require deep understanding of the ocean. Your collaboration will mobilize resources across the private and public sectors to accelerate solutions. No one organization can solve the climate crisis on its own.

Expand Needed Capabilities and Skills

OCIA seeks organizations that can contribute communications, systems technologies, big data, and robotics expertise. The consortium becomes more impactful as it grows because of increased resources and diversity of thought, skills, and technologies.


Opportunities for People

Joining OCIA offers opportunities to increase collaboration among members, foster networking and knowledge sharing, and improve employees’ expertise and skills.
