The IOC Perth Programme Office (PPO) in support of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO is a regional focal point of the IOC to coordinate and facilitate the development and implementation of oceanographic science programs and initiatives, as relevant to the balanced strategic and tactical scientific priorities of the Office’s three sponsoring Parties (IOC-UNESCO, the Australian Government’s Bureau of Meteorology and the Western Australian State Government), across the full spectrum of the IOC’s broad program areas (ocean observations and services, ocean sciences, hazards, and capacity development), but with a focus on the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS).

Attention: The site is currently undergoing construction and maintenance and will be back in full capacity shortly. Thank you for your patience.
