WESTPAC Office (UNESCO/IOC Regional Secretariat for WESTPAC) was established in 1994 by UNESCO through one host agreement with the Government of Thailand. It is based in Bangkok, Thailand with kind host of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources, Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Thailand. The Office is led by an internationally recruited staff of UNESCO.
The Office carries out the diverse day-to-day work of the organization. In partnership with various stakeholders, it oversees, develops, coordinates and implements WESTPAC’s programmes and policies. The duties carried out by the Office are as varied as the problems in the ocean. These range from developing, coordinating programmes to administering financial operations and organizing a number of events, from providing technical support on behalf of the organization to mobilizing financial support for the program implementation.
