Annual Activity Report of the IOI

The annual publication of the IOI is the Activity Report which is printed in hard copy and disseminated widely. This publication shares the knowledge and experience gained from operating the institution and its network.


2014 was a significant year for the International Ocean Institute on many fronts. During the 52nd

Meeting of the IOI Governing Board on the 9th and 10th December the new IOI strategy was

formally adopted launching a number of significant changes for the IOI. Although officially

adopted at the end of the year, significant work on this was carried out over the previous months

of 2014 and were the result of discussion and valuable contribution by members of the IOI

Governing Board and others. The principal aim of the new IOI strategy is to consolidate and focus

the work of the IOI in Ocean Governance globally to make it truly effective in addressing the

challenges of our oceans and to underpin and guide the IOI mission over the next few years;

information about IOI's new strategy is outlined in a special chapter in this annual report.


During 2014, the IOI, through its Operational Centres and their host institutes, continued to

deliver the hallmark high calibre training courses and capacity development events that constitute

the practical underpinning of the IOI strategy into the future. Thus training programmes on ocean governance were held in Canada, Malta and Turkmenistan, along with the MA Degree in Ocean Governance offered at post-graduate level at the University of Malta in conjunction with the IOI. Themed chapters of this Annual Report give accounts of these training and capacity building events and many other programmes and activities in the calendar of the IOI.
