The 56th session of the subsidiary bodies will take place from 6 to 16 June 2022, at the World Convention Center Bonn, Germany.

The ocean covers 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, is the planet's largest biosphere, and is home to up to 80 percent of all life in the world. It generates 50 percent of the oxygen we need, absorbs 25 percent of all carbon dioxide emissions as our planet's largest carbon sink. it is our vital buffer against the impacts of climate change, and it is facing unprecedented threat. The conference will bring together world leaders to protect the state of our ocean.
