Qui nous sommes

Les activités de coopération en sciences marines de la COI dans les Caraïbes et les régions adjacentes existent depuis plus de trente ans. Au cours de cette période, trois étapes distinctes ont marqué l'évolution des sciences marines dans la région. CICAR - 1968 : Le premier effort régional en sciences marines dans les Caraïbes a été l'Enquête coopérative sur les Caraïbes et les régions adjacentes (CICAR) coordonnée par la COI et calquée sur l'Expédition internationale de l'océan Indien. Son objectif était la compréhension des océans et des processus connexes dans la région de la Grande Caraïbe. Association IOCARIBE, 1975 : Les États membres ont reconnu les avantages de la CICAR et ont exprimé leur intérêt à créer une organisation qui lui succédera.

Co-designing the science for the Ocean Decade

The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030) will harness and stimulate innovative ocean research, from co-design to co-delivery, and strengthen the multi-stakeholder cooperation needed to develop the science we need for the ocean we want.


The Decade will provide a framework for collaborative and participative ocean research, and support better integration of diverse knowledge systems from different science disciplines and ocean communities.
