Coastal management in the Western Indian Ocean region - A capacity needs assessment
Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA), Coastal Resources Center - University of Rhode Island

Developing capacity in coastal and marine issues of the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region is a very important activity, given the present growing and projected pressures on the coastal and marine resources.The region s experience in both knowledge-based, technical and equipment capacity building has been progressively growing. Many large milestones have been reached in this current effort to assess the capacity of the WIO region both in the form of increasing the knowledge base on core competencies of a good coastal manager as well as identifying the capacity-building efforts going on in the region. Management of coastal and marine issues is critical to ensure a sustainable future in a region where tens of millions of people depend on coastal resources for their livelihoods. Thus, there is an important need of increasing not only the number of competent and well trained coastal management practitioners, especially with respect to project and program management and its various aspects, but to also facilitate the creation of enabling environments in which these managers can work.

Nairobi + 10 : Mycotoxins 1987 - Report of the Second Joint FAO/WHO/IJNEP International Conference on Mycotoxins
United Nations Environment Programme, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, World Health Organization

The magnitude of the problem is such that in 1975 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution calling on Governments and international organizations to make efforts to reduce food losses in developing countries by 50% by 1985. As a consequence FAO established in 1977 a programme for the prevention of food losses and, in 1983 UNEP published guidelines for the reduction of such losses. In response to the same General Assembly Resolution, a Joint FAO/UNEP Conference on Mycotoxins was convened in Nairobi, Kenya, in September 1977.Since then, and over the past 10 years, national governments and international organizations such as FAQ, WHO and UNEP have carried out a number of activities in these areas. Such activities at the international level and complementary studies by national and international research institutions have increased the understanding of the mycotoxin problem and have shown the effectiveness of certain approaches in controlling mycotoxin contamination.
