WOC Joins International Group of 40 Organizations in the Blue-Action Project on the Impact of Arctic Changes on Northern Hemisphere Weather and Climate.

The World Ocean Council (WOC) has been selected as the only international business organization to participate in the European project Blue-Action, which is being launched this week in Berlin.

Blue-Action will provide fundamental and empirically-grounded, executable science that quantifies and explains the role of a changing Arctic in increasing predictive capability of weather and climate of the Northern Hemisphere.

This project’s transdisciplinary approach will bridge scientific understanding with key stakeholder knowledge of the impacts of climatic weather extremes and hazardous events. Blue-Action will provide robust and reliable forecasting to meteorological and climate services to better deliver tailored predictions and advice. This reduces the risks for the business community and enables stakeholders to create business opportunities.

The WOC will enhance the collaboration between the business community and the participants of the project to foster blue growth and to anticipate the changing Arctic impact on commercial activities. The WOC is well positioned as a unique multi-sectoral ocean industry alliance to help the project engage the non-scientific community and highlight the importance of the data collected.

Blue-Action is an ambitious project lead by international organizations and aiming at providing helpful information for the business community.
