Request for proposals: workshop host for ocean acidification science and policy training in Latin America and the Caribbean

The Ocean Acidification Monitoring and Mitigation project (OAMM) is a public-private partnership between TOF’s International Ocean Acidification Initiative (IOAI) and the U.S. Department of State. OAMM engages government, civil society, and private stakeholders on building capacity of scientists in the Pacific Islands and Latin America and the Caribbean to monitor, understand, and respond to ocean acidification. This is done through regional training workshops, development and delivery of affordable monitoring equipment, and provision of long-term mentorship. The scientific data produced from this initiative can ultimately be used to inform national coastal adaptation and mitigation strategies, while promoting international scientific collaboration through the development of regional monitoring networks.

Proposal Request Synopsis
The Ocean Foundation (TOF) is seeking a workshop host for a training on ocean acidification science and policy. Primary venue needs include a lecture hall that accommodates up to 100 people, additional meeting space, and a lab that can accommodate up to 30 people.
