International Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UNESCO, through its Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), established in 1960 as a body with functional autonomy, promotes international cooperation and coordinates programmes in research, sustainable development, protection of the marine environment, capacity-building for improved management, and decision-making. It assists developing countries in strengthening their institutions to obtain self-driven sustainability in marine sciences. It also facilitates interagency coordination through the UN-Ocean mechanism and works with the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) in establishing a process for global reporting and assessment of the state of the marine environment.

 

Through the Global Ocean Observing System-the ocean component of the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS)- the IOC helps improve operational oceanography, weather and climate forecasts and monitoring and support the sustained observing needs of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). It promotes collection and exchange of oceanographic data through the International Oceanographic Data Exchange (IODE) programme.

On a regional level, IOC coordinated the development of tsunami early warning and mitigation systems in the Pacific, the Indian Ocean, the North-eastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean, and the Caribbean.
