Access our data

The OECD Sustainable Ocean Economy Database brings relevant datasets from across the OECD and partner organisations together in a single place.  The database will grow as new datasets and indicators are developed.

As part of the Sustainable Ocean for All Initiative, the OECD Data Platform on Development Finance for the Sustainable Ocean Economy presents data on official development assistance and private finance mobilised for ocean-related activities in an interactive manner. Data can be accessed and downloaded at both an aggregate and a granular level.
