  • Description:
    With funding provided by the National Sea Grant Office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Ocean Policy Committee of the Ocean Affairs Board organized a conference on marine technical assistance by the U.S. marine science community to foreign nations. The United States occupies a leading position in marine science and technology. This position provides both an opportunity and an obligation to furnish assistance to the growing marine science activities in the developing countries, including and effective transfer of the scientific knowledge and supportive technology. The level of such assistance and cooperation is known to the be high; however, the nature and content of this assistance and cooperation are poorly known. The conference provided an opportunity to survey the scope and character of previous and existing marine science technical assistance programs of both U.S. academic institutions and nondefense federal agencies and to assess their capacity to respond to the perceived needs of foreign States. The conference was divided into the following sections: background issues; academic programs in marine science; fisheries programs and problems; overseas programs and problems; and programs of federal civilian agencies in marine science assistance. Prepared papers were presented on each of the topics, followed by discussions to construct a framework of needs, conflicts, and problems involved in marine science assistance programs. These proceedings, consisting of the prepared papers, panel discussions, and workshop discussions are made available to those individuals interested in the multifaceted implications of marine technical assistance programs. It is hoped that the results of this conference will help to increase the effectiveness of such efforts in the future.
