The Global Ocean Accounts Partnership (GOAP) is a global, multi-institutional partnership established to enable countries and other stakeholders to go Beyond GDP to measure and manage progress toward ocean sustainable development. Co-chaired by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, GOAP brings together governments, international organisations, and research institutions to build a global community of practice for ocean accounting.

The GOAP Secretariat is hosted by the Sustainable Development Reform Hub at the University of New South Wales and partnership activities are funded by the World Bank Blue Economy Program, the United Kingdom Blue Planet Fund, Australia’s Oceans Leadership Package, and the Australia-India Indo-Pacific Oceans Initiative Partnership.
