The Ocean Indicators Working Group (WG) connects researchers and research users across Canada with an interest in monitoring and assessment of ocean environments, ocean uses, and ocean management. Particular attention is paid to developing and utilizing integrated frameworks of indicators to monitor progress toward sustainable development. Such indicators – quantitative measures of environmental, ecological, social, cultural, economic and institutional aspects – provide important mechanisms to track the state of the oceans and of coastal communities and marine-oriented economies, as well as ocean and coastal management. On the latter point, a further theme pursued by this WG lies in the realm of performance indicators, used to assess the extent to which ocean management measures are performing as intended.
