Ocean accounts organise data which describe the complex environmental and economic systems present in our oceans, and the interactions between them. The Australian Government is scoping pilot accounts to support improved ocean management, help increase ocean resource productivity, and improve environmental outcomes in the Asia-Pacific region.
This ocean waste accounting pilot project will be completed by December 2020.
