A Network of Environmental Research in the Western Indian Ocean
The purpose of the project is to facilitate collaboration amongst organizations within the region, particularly as a start between Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius and Seychelles.
This project was initiated to address the need for strategic and targeted research in order to overcome the challenges faced by Indian Ocean countries concerning the sustainable use, development and maintenance of a healthy resilient, social and ecological system especially in the face of climate change and other regional environmental challenges.
Through the developed network, researchers can jointly seek and apply for research grants, and gain regional and international recognition through collaborative projects. Joint research will enable greater access to funding and capacity building, and help to avoid duplication.
Anyone interested in related collaboration initiatives between Indian Ocean Countries is welcome to join the list. Exchanges can be in English and French. To subscribe please write to: WIOenet@unisey.ac.sc
