OBPS is a service organization, supporting ocean research and applications activities that are so important for understanding effective sustainability of our ocean ecosystems. Since our start, we have held workshops and engaged in outreach to listen to your needs. With the use of best practices expanding, our Steering Group looked for a way to maintain an active community engagement and recently approved a Stakeholder Community Forum (SCF). The SCF is open to anyone who is interested in contributing to or providing guidance to the OBPS. This is the way we would like to receive your innovative ideas and your requirements.
The SCF will be hosted in the Ocean Decade Global Stakeholder Forum (ODGSF) as the Ocean Practices Community of Practice (COP). This will be available later this month as the implementation details are finalized. To join the Ocean Practices COP, you will need to register first with the ODGSF. Details on how to access the COP will be mailed to our subscribers soon. We hope you will join us.
