It was another successful year for the IOI-SA Course in Ocean Governance for Africa. The course participants included a lively and engaging group of 20 participants from Benin, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania and a self-funded participant from Brazil. The course ran from the 2nd to the 27th September 2019 in Cape Town.
The annual running of the course is only possible because of the strength of the partnerships involved – we are pleased to partner with the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and the South African International Maritime Institute (SAIMI) to have delivered the 6th IOI-SA Course in Ocean Governance for Africa. The true success of the course is due to the suite of experts who generously return each year to engage with the participants and share their knowledge and enthusiasm. The other key to the success of the course is the participants themselves – one of the strengths of the course is the opportunity for them to share their diverse experiences.
