About Blue Planet

Blue Planet is an Initiative of the Group of Earth Observations (GEO). GEO aims to address global challenges and improve decision making by coordinating and developing the Earth observation efforts among participating governments and organizations.

The overall goal of Blue Planet Initiative is to ensure the sustained development and use of ocean and coastal observations for the benefit of society. Blue Planet is a network of networks made up of participants from a variety of existing international organizations, regional organizations, national institutes, universities, government agencies, project groups and other interested parties.

Blue Planet is working to expand its network and identify pilot and prototype projects that support and link the users and producers of ocean and coastal observation information. These pilot and prototype projects will be focused on four thematic focus areas and will identify user needs and utilize ocean and coastal observations to produce integrated and accessible data and products that provide actionable information and knowledge.
