The Coastal Ocean Environment Summer School in Ghana 2020

Mon 24 Feb 2020


The Coastal Ocean Environment Summer School in Ghana ( is an international collaboration aimed at building capacity in oceanographic and environmental sciences in Ghana specifically, and Africa more generally. Marine issues of great importance to Ghana include fisheries, piracy, pollution, shipping and port management, and the recent advent of offshore oil drilling. We held schools in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and ICTP co-organized the school in 2018. We hold the school every year, alternating between Regional Maritime University and University of Ghana, which are both located in Ghana’s capital city of Accra. In 2020, for the 6th summer in a row, we will host a summer school.  It will be the third school hosted at the University of Ghana.
