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.
