Capacity Building Assessment
Assessment is part of the Capacity Building cycle defined as 4As: Awareness-Assessment-Analysis-Action (List of Technical and High Level Visits).
Technical visits aim at assessing the status of hydrographic surveying, nautical charting and maritime safety information (MSI) and the needs for future development.
High Level Visits
High level visits are performed by the IHO Directing Committee, RHC Chairs or National Hydrographers to coastal States' high level authorities in order to raise awareness of the importance of hydrography and to help further development of the national hydrographic services.
