ED14B:
Capacity Development: A Key Need for Global Ocean Observing Systems I Posters

Session ID#: 85050

Session Description:
Oceanography is a global science with an obvious need for a global network of oceanographers, decision-makers, and industry partners, who work together to define requirements for ocean observing, observe and interpret ocean processes in regional contexts, and use the data / information in wise decision-making for conservation and wise and sustainable use of resources. Yet many coastal countries, especially SIDS (small island developing states) and other developing countries, still have limited numbers of oceanographers and other oceanography-aware stakeholders, limited oceanographic infrastructure, and limited means to take action on oceanographic information.

Building upon a related session that we will lead in OceanObs’19, we strive to build a strategy that works towards improving oceanographic capacity and research/monitoring infrastructure for the decade ahead, which has been designated by the United Nations as a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The strategy may emphasize SIDS and other developing countries, but should be global in outlook, and should include recommendations for coordinating separate efforts. Young researchers and educators are expected to play an important role in developing this strategy and implementing its recommendations.  In support of this larger goal, we seek presentations that focus on advancing a global oceanography capacity strategy, designed to solve practical problems.  Presentations can focus on strategies for oceanographic capacity development, integration of disparate strategies, global and regional observing and modeling systems, and other related topics.
