Ocean Best Practices publish, discover and provide access to relevant and tested methods, from observation to application, as well as a foundation for increasing capacity. The Ocean Best Practice System supports the entire ocean community in sharing methods, developing best practices and capacity development in their use.
Ocean Practices: OBPS Workshop VI is a global, virtual meeting designed to guide the development of best practices and operating practices, to promote their documentation, and to share them widely using the Ocean Best Practices System.
