In anticipation of the 2020 United Nations Ocean Conference, The General Assembly through resolution 73/292 decided to convene a two-day preparatory meeting from 4-5 February 2020 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

In December 2019, the President of the General Assembly appointed, in line with the resolution, H.E. Ms. Ngedikes Olai Uludong, Permanent Representative of Palau, and H.E. Mr. Martin Bille Hermann, Permanent Representative of Denmark, as the co-facilitators to oversee the preparatory process.

As also mandated in resolution 73/292 the Secretary-General has prepared a background note, including a proposal for themes of the interactive dialogues for the Conference, to be considered by the preparatory meeting to be held at United Nations Headquarters in New York. The co-facilitators will guide the consideration of the themes for the interactive dialogues and the elements for a brief, concise, action-oriented and agreed intergovernmental declaration. A set of proposed questions will be circulated to that end.
