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.
