About the Global Ocean Accounts Partnership.

Who we are

GOAP is a global, multistakeholder partnership established to enable countries and other stakeholders to go Beyond GDP to measure and manage progress towards ocean sustainable development.

What we do

Build a global community of practice for ocean accounting to ensure the diverse values of the ocean are recognised in all decision-making about social and economic development.


GOAP membership is open to national governments, intergovernmental institutions, representative bodies of the private sector, and research-intensive institutions.
