Dates of existence



The International Ocean Institute (IOI) was founded in 1972 with the assistance of the United Nations Development Program, the Government of Malta, and the University of Malta. Its organizational structure consists of a Board of Trustees, a Planning Council, and a Directorate. The impetus for its establishment was the Pacem in Maribus conference, which was initiated in 1970. The original purpose of the IOI was to act as a conference secretariat and think tank, but it later turned its focus on training, specifically on training professionals from developing countries in various oceanographic areas. In 1978, it began producing the serial Ocean Yearbook.
