The primary role of each Regional Help Desk Office is to conduct support services to the countries in their respective region, rather than have this support stem solely from the GLOBE Program Office. In general, each GLOBE Regional Help Desk Office is responsible to provide the following services:

  • Help Desk and basic support services to all community members in the region;
  • Sustainability through identification and generation of external funding from sources within and outside of the region;
  • Translation of relevant GPO communications and regionally-produced materials in the languages of the region if needed, and dissemination of information to community members;
  • Recruitment of community members in existing countries and identification and assistance of recruitment of new countries in the region working with the director of the GLOBE International Division;
  • Logistical organization of Regional Events (regional meetings and training events) as outlined and agreed upon by the Regional Governance Board, for which additional funding may be provided;
  • Logistical organization of Regional Student Research Campaigns and events as outlined and agreed upon by the Regional Governance Board;
  • Building and collaboration with the region's Alumni and Scientist Network; and
  • Record keeping and evaluation reporting as required by the GLOBE Program Office (GPO).
