Ocean Best Practices for the Decade

International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) of IOC-UNESCO - Belgium

All Ocean Basins, Expand the Global Ocean Observing System, Programme, Skills, knowledge and technology for all

Humanity's connection to the ocean is based on how we act and react to its multifaceted wonder. Our "ocean practices" are an essential bridge between humanity's cultural and natural heritage.

The Ocean Best Practices for the Decade Programme (“OceanPractices”) will support all ocean stakeholders in securing, equitably sharing, and collectively advancing this methodological heritage.

By engaging diverse communities of practice and interlinking them through FAIR digital technologies, OceanPractices will transform how science and other stakeholders align their interests/capacities, creating ever-better practices, promoting sustainable human and ocean well-being. These practices improve interoperability and facilitate training so broader global participation naturally evolves.
