Welcome to the Ocean Health Index Samoa Opportunities Training Workshop in Apia, Samoa, from May 23-25, 2018.

In this workshop we will do an in-depth exploration of OHI Global assessments and how they represent Samoa. We will also identify opportunites for Samoa, both conceptually (how does the framework represent Samoa?) and technically (what data could we substitute)? We will also have some hands-on experience with the OHI Toolbox, and communicate next steps for OHI in Samoa.

Below is the Workshop schedule.

Additionally, here are links to the seminars given on May 21 and May 22:
