Customized Training Courses

Building ocean capacity

Reinforcing the capacity of government officials and relevant stakeholders is critical for the implementation of ocean governance strategies at the regional and national level. To enhance capacities and mutual understanding in different regions, DOALOS will apply its extensive experience in developing and delivering customized  courses on ocean affairs and the law of the sea, informed by the regional consultations and guided by regional and sub-regional needs and priorities.   

The courses will be open to government officials, officials from regional organizations and other relevant stakeholders. The nomination of female candidates is strongly encouraged. 

Courses will be delivered on prioritized topics such as ocean governance, the blue economy, marine spatial planning, maritime boundaries delimitation and extended continental shelf, among other areas. 


DOALOS delivered an Online Training Course for Delineation of the Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf Beyond 200 Nautical Miles and for Preparation of a submission to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, with the collaboration of the Pacific Maritime Boundaries Consortium and the Pacific Community, from 12 July to 6 August 2021.
