This blog post summarises a written submission the One Ocean Hub did to the UK’s international development strategy, which included the importance of investing in equitable research with Global South countries. Febrica, building on several Hub research processes, argues that transdisciplinary research can assist in tackling real-world complex sustainability challenges such as climate change, human rights and capacity building. The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are interconnected and should therefore be considered through transformative research collaborations with non-academic collaborators and various knowledge systems to better respond to the realities of people who are affected by complex challenges such as climate change and extreme weather.
