Meet all the endorsed Ocean Decade Actions

Global Ecosystem for Ocean Solutions (GEOS)

Ocean Visions and Future Seas - United States of America (USA)

Arctic Ocean, Develop a sustainable and equitable ocean economy, Increase community resilience to ocean hazards, Indian Ocean, North Atlantic Ocean, North Pacific Ocean, Programme, Skills, knowledge and technology for all, South Atlantic Ocean, South Pacific Ocean, Unlock ocean-based solutions to climate change

GEOS will develop and deploy a series of equitable, durable, and scalable ocean-based solutions for addressing climate change and Ocean Decade's challenges.

It will achieve this through three synergistic mechanisms: the GEOS Network made up of researchers, engineers, innovators, investors, decision-makers, and others, which will co-design the GEOS Task Forces for the co-creation of solution-delivering projects, and the GEOS Innovation Engine that will prototype and deploy those solutions. GEOS initial projects focus on ocean-based carbon dioxide removal, providing adaptation tools to coastal communities, and improving ocean-based human health, with further projects to be developed throughout the Ocean Decade.
