Communications STRATEGies

Case Study: Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC)


Flinch is helping the IOC of UNESCO to develop and implement a 4-year Communications Strategy & Action Plan (2017-2020). A key component of this strategy involved helping the IOC to secure 2021-2030 as the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. 


The IOC's Communications Strategy is helping to improve the way countries collaborate on critical ocean science issues.

The IOC's strategy was designed to enable key stakeholders to promote the value that the IOC provides in enabling countries, scientists and decision-makers to collaborate on key science issues affecting our shared global ocean.

Flinch has assisted the IOC with:


  • Securing approval for the United Nations International Decade of Ocean Science (2021-2030). Decade brochure 

  • Designing the Communications Strategy for the UN Decade of Ocean Science
