Climate change and sea-level rise: UNESCO’s past activities (i.e. pre-January 2005)

Within UNESCO and its IOC, the principal contribution to issues related to rising sea-levels has been through such initiatives as the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and the Global Sea Level Observing System (GLOSS), as well as the multi-organizational Global Forum on Oceans, Coasts and Islands. Access is provided through 'UNESCO's Role and Contribution' (right).

Climate change is not of our doing, and we look to the international community for urgent and meaningful action. One day, with perseverance and hope, the Kyoto Protocol will produce the desired results. Meantime, we need serious and intensified efforts on adaptation measures to minimize the vulnerabilities of our communities and to assist especially the small and low-lying island countries that are already in danger.
H.E. Ambassador Tuiloma Neroni Slade. Statement on behalf of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) to the Commission for Sustainable Development (CSD), acting as preparatory committee for the World Summit on Sustainable Development. New York, 1 February 2002.
