This volume presents a summary of available information on progress made(or lack thereof) and obstacles faced in the implementation of the oceans, coasts, and SIDS targets of the World Summit on Sustainable Development, the Millennium Development Goals, and other related agreements. The analysis is based, in large part, on the presentations and discussions which took place at the Third Global Conference on Oceans, Coasts, and Islands: Moving the Global Oceans Agenda Forward, organized by the Global Forum on Oceans, Coasts, and Islands, and held at UNESCO, Paris, January 23-28, 2006.
