Extract from website: ‘Oceanscape is an effort of the GEO Blue Planet Initiative to identify the numerous organisations (including projects, programmes, and other structures) working in the “ocean space”, and to clarify the connections between them (as well as identifying opportunities to make connections where none exist). The Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO), a founding member of GEO Blue Planet, is leading the development of the Oceanscape portal. This portal, which was launched during Ocean Obs’19 in September 2019, is a community effort that aims to serve a variety of stakeholders: the scientific community, who may not be aware of all the initiatives taking place in the “ocean space”, and who could benefit from identifying synergies, new collaborations and avoiding overlap or duplication; NGOs, as well as the private sector, who may be looking for suitable organisations for collaboration; governments and funding agencies, who may not have a clear picture of the “oceanscape” of organisations, what they are each doing and how they differ from one another.’
