Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

World Ocean Observatory

The World Ocean Observatory aims to shed light on the future of the oceans for policymakers around the world by facilitating information exchange, education and public discourse. It contains a directory with links to more than 18,000 organisations listed by region, content and organisation type. The website provides background information about the oceans; offers access to a web-based network for sharing resources; and gives users access to up-to-date information through a news section, blog and radio and video resources. It also contains an online classroom that directs users to web-based learning tools on ocean issues and development, including conservation, fisheries and food security, and ocean energy.
