IODE’s Training Programme: An Overview

Author(s) IOC for UNESCO
Summary During the intersessional period, the training component of IODE was marked by continuous development and regional expansion. As it was recommended during IODE-XV, the regional approach laid the foundation for IODE-TEMA activities. Centres of excellence for providing regular training were identified in some regions (Japan, Russia). More than 15 short-training courses (usually up to two weeks) were arranged in Japan, Denmark, Thailand, Iran, Russia (Gelendzhik, Obninsk), India, Argentina, Kenya, South Africa, France, Greece, Brazil. During these courses, more than 100 participants received training in oceanographic data management.The programmes of the courses covered different aspects of data and information management and were also used for making local experts acquainted with the IOC regional activities and IODE data and information exchange policy. This helps to increase awareness of the system, its benefits and provides an opportunity to improve national and regional data and information management capabilities.
