Developing WIOGEN

This week, IOI-SA was in Langebaan, on the West Coast of South Africa, for a meeting to develop a new project, WIOGEN: Western Indian Ocean Governance Exchange Network. The project is an exciting opportunity to work with our partners at Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) in Bremen towards building capacity for ocean governance in the Western Indian Ocean Region.

We also had the opportunity to meet the rest of the teams working on proposals for the MeerWissen project, funded through BMZ and managed by GIZ. It was fruitful meeting for sharing ideas and suggestions on six exciting proposals that will benefit African marine research, sustainable resource use and good ocean governance.
