IOC Strategic Plan for Oceanographic Data and Information Management (2017-2021)

Publié le 29 août 2017, par Thérèse Hameau

The vision of the Strategic Plan is

to achieve : “A comprehensive and integrated Ocean Data and Information System, serving the broad and diverse needs of IOC [Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO] Member States, for both management and scientific use”. The concept of delivering a data and information service for the “global ocean commons” (i.e. global public good) is central to this vision.

The objectives of the Strategic Plan are to :

  • Facilitate and promote the exchange of oceanographic data and information in compliance with the IOC Oceanographic Data Exchange Policy ;
  • Deliver a comprehensive distributed data system that can receive data collected by all IOC programmes and projects and deliver them in a uniform and transparent way to all users ;
  • Deliver a system that can collect bibliographic and factual information from all IOC programmes and projects and deliver them in a uniform and transparent way to all users ; and
  • Ensure alignment with, and contribution to, both the IOC’s Medium-Term Strategy for 2014-2021, and with the UN’s 2030 Agenda for sustainable development, in particular the dedicated sustainable development goal for the ocean (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development).
