Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Joint Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM)

This website publishes information on the Joint Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology, which provides a mechanism for technical experts to coordinate ocean and marine data, combining expertise from the World Meteorological Organisation and UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission. The organisation develops and oversees standards and procedures for monitoring and responds to users' needs for information and capacity building. The website contains useful guides and reports on these topics, including an online catalogue of practices and standards, and a handbook that aims to help guide sustainable coastal and marine development.
