Transfer of marine technology: knowledge sharing and capacity development for sustainable ocean and coastal management

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO is the only intergovernmental organization with a specific mandate in marine scientific research, services and capacity building in all of the world’s ocean basins. Established in 1960 through UNESCO’s 11th General Conference, the IOC is mandated “to promote international cooperation and to coordinate programmes in research, services and capacity-building, in order to learn more about the nature and resources of the ocean and coastal areas and to apply that knowledge for the improvement of management, sustainable development, the protection of the marine environment, and the decision-making processes of its Member States” (IOC Statutes, Article 2.1 ).
