Ocean Best Practices

Category: 2022

This course is an introduction to the Ocean Best Practices System. A
best practice is a methodology that has repeatedly produced superior
results relative to other methodologies with the same objective; to be
fully elevated to a best practice, a promising method should be adopted
and employed by multiple organizations.This short course provides an
overview of the importance and relevance of using and sharing Ocean Best
Practices and Standards, as well as on how to create, submit, share and
search for Best Practices in the Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS)
repository. This course is intended for University students, researchers
and ocean practitioners in general. It does not provide a certificate.
