MASMA call for proposals for the organization of training courses/workshops and publication of books/manuals

WIOMSA is implementing a five-year Marine and Coastal Science for Management (MASMA) Programme (2018-2022) that aims to assist the countries of the western Indian Ocean (WIO) to achieve the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and comply with the Paris Agreement. Collectively, these two frameworks present a universally applicable and interconnected approach to integrating the three dimensions of sustainable development and require a similarly integrative and widely useful mosaic of solutions.
