SPINCAM and Ocean Teacher (IOC-UNESCO/IODE) organize the Training Course on E-repositories in Guayaquil (Ecuador), 26-30 May 2014
The SPINCAM project (Southeast Pacific Data and Information Network in Support to Integrated Coastal Area Management) was designed to establish an integrated coastal area management (ICAM) indicator framework at national and regional level in the countries of the Southeast Pacific region (Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Peru) focusing on the state of the coastal and marine environment and socio-economic conditions, to provide stakeholders with information and atlases on the sustainability of existing and future coastal management practices and development.
One of the priority areas for training for SPINCAM members is the development and maintenance of e-repositories for each country participating in the project. This course aims at addressing these training needs and will focus on the practical use of repositories
