The aim of this report is to provide context for Rio+20 discussions through analysis of current challenges in ocean and coastal management around the world (including how to both mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change), assessment of how well the multiple goals and objectives of previous international efforts have been met, and building on recent dialogue and inputs including the meeting of the UN Informal Consultative Process on Oceans and the Law of the Sea (UNICPOLOS) and the Secretary General’s report on Oceans and Law of the Sea.
