Ocean Practices Ambassadors

A key priority of the Ocean Practices for the Decade Programme is community-led capacity development in ocean best practices to promote equitable access to ocean best practices across communities,  disciplines, and regions. The early career Ocean Practices Ambassadors are representing these diverse voices, actively promoting the access and implementation of ocean best practices in the field, thereby raising awareness, building trust, and shaping ocean best practices across the entire ocean value chain.

In this 2-year programme our mission is to:

  1. Promote the adaptation, development, and implementation of ocean best practices

  2. Identify regional issues and priorities where ocean best practices are needed to help the evolution of the Ocean Best Practices System tailored to the needs and priorities of a diverse ocean community.
