Engaging and Mapping Ocean Actors
Access to information, knowledge and ocean expertise is often fragmented and scattered – in terms of territory, discipline and between a diverse range of ocean stakeholders. This is a challenge to research and decision-making communities in finding, collaborating, and synthesizing the knowledge needed to address complex social-ecological issues for implementing the ecosystem approach, enhancing ocean governance, and otherwise contributing to a sustainable ocean future.

All ocean actors hold some knowledge that is key to tailor research and decision-making - we wish to make you and your knowledge accessible to ocean colleagues.  FOA seeks to respond to the expressed need of those involved with ocean management and ocean-related knowledge building and governance to understand who is doing what, where, when, how, and what for? so that actionable solutions are delivered and governance is enhanced.

To better engage you and serve the ocean community, please stay in touch, and let us learn about you and your priorities (less than 3 minutes):
Thank You!
