2006-2007

Activities to be implemented in 2006 were preparatory activities without direct cost to the UNESCO regular programme funds provided to the IODE programme. Use of UNESCO funds will require adoption of a Recommendation by the IODE Committee (of which the 19th Session is planned to take place in 2007) - the recommendation will then need to be adopted by an IOC Governing Body - or directly by an IOC Governing Body (Executive Council or Assembly).

The First ODINECET MIM Training Course (March 2006) identified a number of activities that need to be implemented. These were subsequently formalized in a Project Document. Below we list the progress with the work plan listed in that Project Document.
