Marine Biodiversity Networking Fridays Asia & Pacific The Global Ocean Observing System and related activities in the Asia-Pacific region – 09 September 2022, Online

On September 9th, 2022, 8-9 AM JST we will have a dedicated session on the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and related activities in the Asia-Pacific region. Dr Karen Evans will present on Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs), within a Global Ocean Observation System, to provide a better understanding of marine life to meet universal goals in sustainable development and conservation and Dr Sanae Chiba will present on the role of the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) as an intergovernmental organization established for promoting science collaboration in the North Pacific. Through the implementation of the UNDOS-endorsed programme, SmartNet, PICES is keen to expand its partnership network beyond the North Pacific and toward diverse communities. But can PICES mobilize the network to contribute to global biodiversity monitoring and how?
