The AIR Centre is an international networked organization, which mainly addresses the ocean-climate nexus, integrating several disciplines and promoting cooperation to address national priorities and global challenges such as those defined by the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, and the All-Atlantic Ocean Atlantic Research & Innovation Alliance. The AIR Centre builds on and expands the reach of individual organizations, and it advances selected scientific and technological domains and their key actors towards shared targets. For that, it recruits and orchestrates a complex web of organizations and individuals to deliver change and societal impact through concrete actions. This complexity stems from the AIR Centre’s unique multidimensional mission-oriented, demand-driven, and problem-solving approach. Under the AIR Centre umbrella different stakeholders (e.g., government, academia, industry, and civil society), and diverse geographies and cultures (e.g., American, Caribbean, African, European countries and small island states or overseas territories in the Atlantic basin) find a platform for dialogue and collaboration.
