Western Indian Ocean Regional Initiative

WIO-RISE provides research and training in skills associated with the utilization of coastal and marine resources and the protection of the coastal and marine environment. The network avails itself of the substantial experience of IMS/UDSM, which has roots in the former East African Marine Fisheries Research Organization and the affiliated Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association based in Zanzibar. The School of Marine and Coastal Studies at Eduardo Mondlane University is strategically located near the Sofala Bank, a major fishery and aquaculture resource, and the University of Cape Town has the only department in southern Africa offering graduate training in physical oceanography, climate science, and atmospheric science.
