EWC Southeast Asian Ocean Professionals Program (#EWCSEAOPP)


The East-West Center’s Southeast Asian Ocean Professionals Program (#EWCSEAOPP), is a ten-year regional initiative officially endorsed as a UNESCO Ocean Decade ActionSEAOPP is notably co-founded and run in collaboration with Southeast Asian based partners. SEAOPP’s inaugural Decade Project, the Ocean Research Corps (#EWCoceancorps), will respond to UNESCO’s call to “change how we finance and conduct ocean research” by training 100 young researchers in 100 different communities across Southeast Asia for the Ocean Decade. Corps researchers will be Early Career Ocean Professionals (with less than 10 years’ experience) on one-year, non-residential EWC research intern posts and embedded in their local communities and affiliated with a local University, NGO, or business.

This Project is hosted under the Decade Programme Early Career Ocean Professionals.
