This monograph is an attempt at describing and analyzing the various global ocean programmes and their interactions. Besides describing the major international and some regional programmes promoted by international, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, and provides information on the institutional and legal frameworks of the described programmes, it also examines the interactions between the described programmes and the mechanisms set up for their coordination. By analyzing the structural, organizational and financial problems hindering the development and implementation of the described programmes, including the weaknesses in national institutions, policies and practices, this book focuses on programmes whose primary aim is to improve knowledge about the oceans.
