G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Working Group

The G7 Science and Technology Group, which met in Tsukuba from 15 to 17 May 2016, produced an official text with one of its priority themes relating to the future of the oceans and seas. For memory, the other areas related to health, energy, gender policy and innovation;

For the Ocean, four main strategic actions (observing systems, governance, marine data and regional networks) have been endorsed by Japan, Italy, Canada, Germany, the USA, Great Britain and France.

International working groups were set up in the second half of 2016 to prepare a ten-page document of proposals and scientific guidelines for each of these guidelines, with two levels of deadlines: six months and five years.

The countries worked on the following 5 actions:

  • Action 1- Support the development of a global initiative for an enhanced, global, sustained sea and ocean observing system, developing new technologies and integrating new physical, biogeochemical and biological observations while sustaining critical ongoing observations and ensuring full co-ordination with existing mechanisms.
  • Action 2- Support an enhanced system of ocean assessment through the UN Regular Process for Global Reporting and Assessment of the State of the Marine Environment that would help develop a consensus view on the state of the oceans on a regular timescale.
  • Action 3- Promote the improvement of global data sharing infrastructure such as GEO/GEOSS, among others, to address the challenges not only of physical / chemical data but also biological data. This should ensure the discoverability, accessibility, and interoperability of a wide range (research, citizen, and commercial) of ocean and marine data.
  • Action 4- Strengthen collaborative approaches to encourage the development of regional observing capabilities and knowledge networks. Through enhancement of global coordination mechanisms and infrastructure, help build capacity to better use global ocean information as well as to monitor the oceans, in particular in developing countries.

  • Action 5- Promote increased G7 political‐cooperation by identifying additional actions needed to enhance future routine ocean observations.

The workshop on 13 and 14 June, which will be held in Paris at the Ministry in charge of research, will summarise the activities carried out by the group in the 5 actions, but will also discuss the different priorities that the G7 working group could take in the future.
