The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) presented its ocean-climate priorities at the 26th session of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland. GOOS co-chair Anya Waite (Ocean Frontiers Institute) presented GOOS priorities in the science pavilion as part of the GCOS Status Report 2021 and the Earth Information Day.
At the JPI Oceans scoping workshop on ocean carbon capacities in October 2021, the EU coordinator of the G7 FSOI Coordination Centre presented the G7 collaboration with the International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) to develop an internationally agreed strategy for Surface Ocean CO2 monitoring.
This high level document summarises recommendations for sustainable ocean observation and management, and is the result of a cooperation between EuroSea and 9 other innovative European projects.
The G7 FSOI Coordination Centre has published a summary report from the 2021 Working Group meeting that took place online from 28 to 30 June. The report outlines the major actions to be taken forward jointly by the G7 countries and the European Union to enhance global ocean observations.
Bringing together data providers, users and stakeholders from Europe and beyond, the conference served to showcase a EMODnet data and products resulting from a decade of progress across the EMODnet network. The EU4OceanObs action coordinators took part in EMODnet global dialogues panel.
On 16 June 2021, the European Marine Board released a new policy brief focusing on in situ Ocean observations, highlights their benefits, funding and governance challenges, and the investment needed for their transformation and sustainability.
