Chair Numberi noted further steps to be taken immediately, including: He told participants that the drafting process is ongoing, with the first meeting in and the last working group meeting in September This meeting will take place Novemberin Recife, Brazil, and will be preceded by a working group on sport and recreational fisheries and a compliance committee meeting.
This meeting and its associated meetings will take place from Junein Madeira, Portugal. She emphasized the important role of observation systems and cited the Research Moored Array for African-Asian-Australian Monsoon Analysis as an example of advancing monsoon research and forecasting.
In the afternoon, five speakers considered more specific aspects of coral reef management. Patricio Bernal eagerly anticipated Declaratiom as an important mechanism for continuing to emphasize the ocean agenda. He noted the UN system initiatives on: Roberto Calcagno, Prince Albert Oceanographic Foundation, Monaco, stressed the importance of adequate communication between the scientific world, civil society and policy makers and invited participants to contribute to declararion Monaco Ocean Summit to be held April Can I borrow this item?
She stressed that climate change consequences will be felt rapidly in the coming years, and noted the important role of adaptive management, empowerment of communities through capacity building, and partnerships with universities. This meeting will be held Junein Molde, Norway. This session will be held Decemberin Papeete, Tahiti.

From 25 December to 1 Januarythe Manavo Reading Rooms will be closed and no collection requests will be filled. She acknowledged the role of WOC in clarifying the interaction of oceans and climate change, reminded participants of the important humanitarian concerns related to climate change, and supported the Manado Ocean Declaration.
This meeting will occur Septemberin Bergen, Norway.
Two presentations focused on the varying efficacy of different artificial reef structures in different areas to seed and promote the growth of desired coral species. Participants also examined two major emerging ocean policy issues: Peter Bjornsen, GEF, discussed adaptive management institutions and highlighted that climate change compounds existing pressures on the marine environment, such as pollution and overfishing.
She noted that while Bajo fishers have a cosmological affinity with whale sharks that prevents them from hunting the species, fishers in adjacent areas do not hold such beliefs and actively fish them. US delegation head Ocaen M.
Volume Number 5 – Monday, 18 May She noted the current status of global fish stocks, stressing the need for integrative approaches to reverse their decline. He highlighted current limitations, including lack of infrastructure and skilled human resources, and accessibility of remote islands. Participants assessed the status of oceans and coasts and progress achieved over the last decade, identified continuing and new challenges, examined options for concerted action on cross-sectoral issues and laid the groundwork for the inclusion of an oceans perspective and small island developing states SIDS mansdo in the WSSD agenda.
He also drew declarwtion several Australian initiatives that other countries can ocesn from, including: She emphasized that global ocean governance needs to be strengthened, and highlighted the advantages of manxdo ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management. Noting that the marine environment is an international discipline, he called for the assistance of other countries to improve their understanding of the relationship between scientific observations in Namibia and the impacts of climate change.
Pedro Fernandez, Polytechnic University of Madrid, Spain, presented on the impact declaation tourism on coastal Viet Nam, noting that a sharp rise in the numbers of visitors has resulted in rapid and poorly planned development of resorts and environmental degradation.
Malaysia pledged its full cooperation for implementing the proposed CTI Road Map, emphasizing an interest in capacity building and developing inter-coastal and ecosystem-based management plans.
One speaker explained that such community-based management structures have also benefited from parallel efforts in educating local children and teenagers along the coasts about the importance of conserving their coral and coastal resources.
The meeting sought to accelerate progress in achieving international ocean policy targets, especially those related to the WSSD and the Millennium Development Goals. Koehler stressed the need for policy and financial instruments to contribute to effective climate change adaptation.
Al Duda, GEF, identified the many financial opportunities available for climate change projects.

Nicole Glineur, Global Environment Facility GEFpresented on adaptation measures, noting that climate change will result in losses of coastal lands and mangrove ecosystems, reducing their ability to provide food and income.
Craig Starger, University of California Los Angeles, US, presented on inferring patterns of connectivity and defining conservation priorities in the Coral Triangle through the integration of genetics and modeling. Chair Michael Koehler underlined the need to integrate oceans, seas, coasts and islands into discussions of climate change and suggested that market mechanisms might lead to more responsible management of marine resources.
Desima Williams of Grenada, a small island state vulnerable to climate change impacts, agreed the declaration had manzdo the interests of small island state. Richard Spinrad, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAAUS, called for a commitment to collaborative science to assess, predict, mitigate against, and adapt to the implications of a changing climate and oceans. Subsequent discussion arose over developing convergent versus country-specific solutions for climate change concerns, and creating economic opportunities for SIDS to tackle climate change and coastal problems.

He also highlighted temporal and spatial changes in the migration of marine species in oceab marine protected areas MPAs in the US, and urged countries to contribute to the US initiative to establish a global ocean monitoring system.

The exponential rise in carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels has increased ocean acidity, said Haymet, noting that declaeation research suggests that this corrosive water will dissolve vast calcium carbonate coastlines including those of eastern North America.
Cropper recalled the activism of the s and early s, which provided the basis for taking a precautionary approach to climate change.
He cautioned that oceans also serve as a vector for pollution and disease, underscoring the need for international cooperation, and said that the CTI Regional Plan of Action will serve as a basic roadmap for moving forward.
