Resumen : The Kenya National Oceanographic Data Center (KeNODC) began operating in January 1997. The first set of activities included identification of staff members and setting up of office infrastructure. Amidst all this, the Center conducted the first planning mission in March 1997 to set out priorities for action. Foremost were the duty allocations among the four staff members designated by KMFRI. This has been followed by a familiarization of a number of IODE policy documents and manuals for operating a data center. Training and internships have been variously held for various members of staff. The KeNODC will endevour to create links useful for satisfying data demands of scientists, coastal managers, and policy makers. This will be done through a number of data services and data products that will be described below. A committee chosen from key institutions determined by their individual mandates will determine operational policies of the center. This move would be initiated within the framework of the Kenya National Oceanographic Committee. The Data Center already plays a useful role as a recipient of a number of data sets from international sea observation programs. The Center will in future play a big role in all aspects of information dissemination taking into consideration the role RECOSCIX-WIO has been playing both nationally and regionally RECOSCIX-WIO is an information project working towards establishing a network of marine and aquatic institutes in the Western Indian Ocean region with the broad objective of promoting data exchange and providing of bibliographic information.
