The GEO Blue Planet Executive Committee adopted the GEO Blue Planet Governance and Operations Plan in November 2021. This document provides an overview of the governance and operations procedures of GEO Blue Planet and serves as an addendum to the GEO Blue Planet Implementation Plan.
An initiative of the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO), GEO Blue Planet focuses on the use of ocean and coastal observations to inform policy and decision-making. The GEO Blue Planet Secretariat, which is part of the Executive Committee, is geographically distributed, currently with offices located in Europe and North America, which together provide coordination support to GEO Blue Planet’s global activities. The European Office is hosted by Mercator Ocean International, with funding from the European Union through the EU4OceanObs.
