Summary The IODE Programme must now meet the new challenges related to ocean data and information management. The IODE community has to lead the way in coordinating access to marine data and information to support the broad needs of the scientists, policy makers, marine resources managers, commercial sector and the general public. Whereas in the past IODE data centres focused mainly on delayed-mode, physical oceanography data, the IODE Programme now gives attention to all ocean related data including physical, chemical, and biological oceanographic data, and to operational data streams in addition to delayed mode data. IODE now closely collaborates with, and services the needs of the other IOC and related programmes such as Ocean Sciences, Global Ocean Observing System, Joint Commission on Oceanography and Marine Meteorology, and others.
