Data and Information Management and Sharing in the Decade: Why, Who, What, and How?


This Decade Coordination Office for Ocean Data Sharing (DCO-ODS) & IODE joint webinar, aimed at Decade Actions and relevant stakeholders, focuses on the role of the DCO-ODS highlighting ongoing and planned efforts to support Decade Actions. It will highlight existing resources for data sharing and management, gather stakeholder feedback on data (management) needs, and provide updates on related Decade efforts, including Decade Challenge 8 (Creating a Digital Representation of the Ocean) and the Decade’s Data and Information Strategy. The session will also introduce general data management and sharing requirements, information resources with general guidance and best practices, and feature examples from primary affiliated programmes such as the OceanData2030, WorldOceanDatabase, GEOTRACES, and the FAO Fisheries and Environmental Atlas. The goal is to present insights and progress, while aligning with useful materials and showcasing effective practices in ocean data management.
