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.

The Sargassum Information Hub: A collaborative approach to a common problem
To tackle the growing problem of Sargassum, GEO Blue Planet’s Sargassum Information Hub is bringing Sargassum-impacted communities together to share data, research, and knowledge, and ultimately find workable solutions to the challenges posed by the proliferation of Sargassum mats.
GMES & Africa supporting Marine and Coastal Operations for Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean
The MarCOSIO Consortium, part of Phase II of the GMES & Africa programme, leverages satellite data to provide decision support tools for marine and coastal management. One key service focuses on detecting and monitoring algal blooms, enabling aquaculturalists to make informed decisions about the running of their operations.
