G7 Future of Seas and Oceans Initiative

Political cooperation

Promote increased G7 political cooperation by identifying additional actions needed to enhance future routine ocean observations.

Fostering governance / policy agreements between G7 countries

Document how G7 members coordinate and fund ocean observations nationally (working across ministries, agencies, and institutions) and how they engage and coordinate regionally and globally.

This activity will document how G7 members coordinate and fund ocean observations nationally, and how they engage and coordinate regionally and globally. This activity should liaise with other regional and international ocean governance groups that are also currently evaluating the ways and means of strengthening the sustained ocean observing system governance and support. The activity should aim to develop strategies to increase the percentage of the ocean observing system on core / regular funding.
