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.
2015 was another busy year for the International Ocean Institute globally with many of the strategy decisions taken during the 52nd Meeting of the IOI Governing Board in 2014 coming to full fruition over this year and laying the foundations for more future activities. In this year the IOI, through its Centres and their host institutes, and other partners, continued to deliver the hallmark high calibre training courses and capacity development events that constitute the practical underpinning of the IOI.
Special events also marked out this year with highlights being the award of the EMB Medal to HE Mr Ban Ki-Moon UNSG, on the 28th November during his visit to Malta, the launch of the World Ocean Review 4: Marine Resources – Sustainable Use of Our Oceans – Making Ideas Work (WOR 4) and the Massive Open Online Course, One Planet - One Ocean.
