Project ID 2210312021

Many member states of IOCAFRICA lack the skilled personnel, equipment and ocean observation platforms to enable them generate sufficient data, analyse the data and prepare products essential for integrated management of the marine and coastal environment and resources. This activity will strengthen ocean observations and monitoring in the region in order to provide "ocean information for human and economic security". The major issues that the observations should address include: (i) Food security and fisheries, (ii) Early warning for ocean related hazards and disaster risk reduction, (iii) ecosystem services and sustainability, (iv) coastal management and governance (v) Climate variability/change and adaptation, and (vi) education and training.
