Cabo Verde Declaration on Ocean Observations

Following its 20th Annual Meeting, held in Mindelo, Cabo Verde, in January 2019, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) has issued the Cabo Verde Declaration on Ocean Observations

In this Statement, the Directors of around 40 major oceanographic institutions call, in unison, on Governments worldwide to provide sustained support for ocean observations through a fully operational Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). The Statement highlights the societal benefits derived from ocean observations and emphasises the currently insufficient resources available for international coordination for the scale of the work that is required as well as for full engagement of the developing world.
