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.
