The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC)

The IOC, established in 1960 as a body with functional autonomy within UNESCO, is the only specialized organization for marine sciences and capacity development within the UN system. The Commission promotes coordination and international cooperation in ocean research, observations, services, and capacity-development. It collaborates with relevant international organizations, especially within the United Nations system, and helps its Member States to develop knowledge about the nature and resources of the ocean and coastal areas in order to support sustainable development, protection of the marine environment, and informed marine-related management and decision-making.
