Abstract
    The Intergovernmental Committee for GOOS met in Paris from 28-30 June, 2001. It reviewed the structure, mandates and modus operandi of GOOS, and the state of GOOS development. It agreed that regional development of GOOS should be a top priority, along with increased visibility of GOOS by governments, and promotion of GOOS to governments by national “GOOS Focal Points”. It agreed to create a new formal management structure for I-GOOS, comprising an I-GOOS Board or Bureau, and a set of ad hoc Intersessional Working Groups to enable I-GOOS to carry out its business. It agreed to hold a review of GOOS focusing on the structure, mandates and modus operandi, during 2002, with the object of reporting to the 22nd IOC Assembly in 2003. It agreed to hold a Regional GOOS Forum every second year between the biennial I-GOOS meetings. Ms Silvana Vallerga (Italy) was elected chairperson, and Rodrigo Nuñez (Chile) and Ms Janice Trotte (Brazil) were elected co-chairpersons.
