“ Strengthening international ocean governance to enhance the collection, sharing and use of ocean data to address environmental and societal challenges ”
EU4OceanObs will promote the Europe’s ocean observing capacities, data infrastructures, and best practices to enhance global ocean observations, foster collaborative partnerships, and increase the sharing and use of ocean data on a global scale.
EU4OceanObs will work with the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative (FSOI) 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 will work 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.
The Hub serves as a single-entry point to access up-to-date information and tools to monitor, forecast and manage Sargussum blooms in the Atlantic Ocean and its coastal area. Developed jointly by GEO Blue Planet, IOCARIBE of IOC-UNESCO, the AIR Centre and AtlantOS...
The GEO Blue Planet EU Office participated in the session on Marine Litter and Microplastics Mitigation and Prevention, co-hosted by the Global Partnership on Marine Litter, during the UN Science-Policy-Business Forum on the Environment on 19 Feb.
