Project ID 513GLO2046

OTGA-2 will build on the legacy of OTGA and include new initiatives and challenges now in place, e.g the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs and the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. New ready to deliver course topics will be made available online. The network of RTC's will be joined by STC's that can deliver very specific training topics. Training topics will also include tools that can help MS achieving the SDGs as well as emerging topics such as Ocean Acidification and Blue Carbon. OTGA-2 will foster collaborations beyond UNESCO/IOC to position itself as the training platform for ocean related topics within the UN and beyond.
