Phys. Oceanogr., Vol. 10, No. 5, p. 379 (1999) 9 VSP 2000. UN[SCO 1998 International Year of the Ocean The oceans and their resources are a necessary element of life on this planet. The health of the oceans and the wise, safe, and sustainable use of the ocean resources should be an axiom for all govern- ments to acCept and honour for the long-term benefit and exis- tence of their respective and collective peoples. The acquisition of the knowledge necessary for the under- standing and stewardship of the oceans and their adjacent seas for the adoption of policies, standards, and regulations to protect the ocean environment and to husband their resources are goals to be pursued both nationally and internationally. There should be mutual assistance and the will to work to- gether to achieve common goals for the oceans--adjacent and regional coastal states should cooperate in the adoption of local policies and actions--countries with knowledge and resources should assist less fortunate neighbours--data and information for global and regional problems should be readily available--- States should make use of international and intergovernmen- tal organizations to generate global programs and agreements. We recognize the wisdom of acting in unison to protect the oceans and to use their resources in a sustainable manner and accept this Ocean Charter as a basis for future action.
