Good management of our oceans requires good information if it is to be founded on solid evidence, be well implemented, and receive broad support across society (Australian Government, 2015).

The High-Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy has recently released a blue paper on national accounting for the ocean and the ocean economy. The paper outlines the opportunity to leverage national accounting principles to support the management of a sustainable ocean economy.

IDEEA Group have been working with the Commonwealth Government of Australia to demonstrate how ocean accounting, an approach which applies national accounting principles to bridge ecology and the economy, can be applied at a local level. We look forward to sharing this work with you towards the end of 2020.
