“ Strengthening international ocean governance to enhance the collection, sharing and use of ocean data to address environmental and societal challenges ”

EU4OceanObs works with the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative to advance the Global Ocean Observing System and EU leadership in the collection and use of data for ocean health, climate, and the development of a sustainable blue economy.

EU4OceanObs works with GEO Blue Planet to improve international access and use of EU global ocean and coastal data and derived applications, critical for ocean knowledge, decision support tools and raising awareness of the societal benefits of ocean observations.

EU4OceanObs aims to strengthen the international strategy for and coordination of global ocean observation

Through its G7 FSOI and GEO Blue Planet components, EU4OceanObs will catalyse essential partnerships between European and international infrastructures and programmes across the ocean observing value chain to deliver a coordinated fit-for-purpose system. By building on European observing capacity and leadership, EU4OceanObs seeks to increase the sharing and use of ocean data to meet global needs for ocean information.
