The GEO Blue Planet Initiative is the coastal and ocean arm of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) that aims to ensure the sustained development and use of ocean and coastal observational data for policy and decision-making. GEO Blue Planet works with stakeholders to identify their ocean and coastal information needs, co-design responsive tools and products, and build capacity to strengthen and transfer capabilities. The initiative is an open, global network of ocean and coastal observers, social scientists, and end-user representatives from global and regional organizations, NGOs, national institutions, universities, and government agencies.

GEO Blue Planet’s mission is to: 1) Advance and exploit synergies among the many observational programs devoted to ocean and coastal waters; 2) Improve engagement with a variety of stakeholders for enhancing the timeliness, quality, and range of services delivered; 3) And raise awareness of the societal benefits of ocean observations at the public and policy levels.
