Rezah Badal, responsible for Ocean Affairs Unit of Mauritius, said the goal of this annual event is to review progress in the projects implemented by the member countries of the IOGOOS such as satellite observation, the establishment of the regional warning centers and installing tsunameters.

A dispatch from the Panafrican News Agency (PANA) quoted statements by the official concerning the discussions at the meeting include the progress in research on Indian Ocean observation on various topics like ocean biogeochemistry, marine ecosystem and variability of sea level.

Fishing in the southwest Indian Ocean, the modeling and ocean forecasting, also will be the focus of the meeting.

Created in 2002, IOGOOS is a formal collaboration between 19 organizations from several countries working together for the installation of the observing system in the Indian Ocean.

That group developed initiatives that helped promote regional capacity with a view to a better understanding of the phenomena related to the ocean.
