Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) Implementation plan (2024–2025) – Summary


IOC Resolution XXVI-8 (2011) created the GOOS Steering Committee and requested it to “produce a biennial Workplan for consideration by the IOC Governing Bodies and adoption by the Assembly.”

This Work Plan Summary (2024–2025) provides an overview and analysis of implementation towards the Global Ocean Observing System 2030 Strategy (GOOS-239). GOOS has made considerable progress in the four years since the adoption of the 2030 Strategy. However, although GOOS has gained some additional resources, the demand for active global coordination is increasing. To achieve what society, policy and the Member States need—a truly integrated and responsive ocean observing system, GOOS will need additional resource across the next three years. In this document we report on progress towards the 11 GOOS Strategic Objectives and provide a clear view of where additional resource is needed for the next steps of implementation.
