This conclusion was reached at a meeting held in UNESCO headquarters, Paris, France, of more than 400 coastal and ocean experts assembled for The Global Confer- ence on Oceans and Coasts at Rio+10: Toward the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Deaelopment, Johannesburg.1 I "Sustainable development and poverty reduction cannot be achieved without healthy oceans and coasts," said the meeting's Co-Chairs, Dr. Patricio Bernal, Ex- ecutive Secretary of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO, and Dr. Biliana Cicin-Sain, Director of the Center for the Study of Marine Policy of the University of Delaware (USA). "The key question is how to sustain the natural resource base and the integrity of coastal and ocean ecosystem services, while continuing to expand economically. We strongly recommend that the United Na- tions put sustainable development of oceans-comprising 70% of the Earth's sur- face-as a central feature of the World Summit."
