In collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), KISR organized the 6th Session of the Intergovernmental Regional Committee for the Central Indian Ocean (IOCINDIO). The forum aimed to discuss issues related to the mid Indian Ocean Region (IOR), as well as strengthen the international cooperation in the field of studies on marine environment issues in the region.

This forum shows KISR’s keenness to congregate scientists and researchers specialized in the field of marine environment to benefit from their expertise for conducting studies. Such studies would help decision-makers to learn how to manage natural resources based on the marine environment, in a sustainable way. Thus, neither the coming generations’ share, nor the international community would be affected. A workshop was held at the sidelines of the forum, during which discussions took place about accomplished research projects in this field.
