The WIOMSA Symposium, the largest open scientific conference in the region on marine and coastal issues, is a biennial event that has established itself as an intellectual and knowledge marketplace that offers a unique regionwide platform for dialogue, knowledge exchange, capacity building, strategic action and cooperation. WIOMSA uses the symposium as a platform to showcase innovative solutions for addressing the challenges facing coastal communities, policy makers, management authorities and the private sector in the Western Indian Ocean. It is expected that this year’s symposium, whose theme is “People, Coasts and Oceans: Opportunities for a changing future”, will bring together 400-500 leading researchers, academics, scientists, policy makers, practitioners and students to present the latest research findings in all aspects of coastal and marine science.
