How oceans- and seas-related measures contribute to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: Local and regional experiences
UN-DESA, 2014
The e-publication “How oceans- and seas-related measures contribute to the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development: Local and regional experiences” is being published by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) in collaboration with the Division for Ocean Affairs and Law of the Sea (UN-DOALOS) of the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs (OLA), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the International Maritime Organization (IMO), the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (IOC-UNESCO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

The e-publication is a contribution to a growing collection of studies on how to conserve and sustainably manage the resources of the oceans and seas to foster sustainable development. It contains a selection of successful local and regional examples of oceans- and seas-related measures from around the world. In particular, the publication seeks to illustrate how these measures were able to contribute to all three dimensions of sustainable development with benefits not only for the environment, but also for local communities and national economies.
