Ocean issues are gaining visibility due to various organizational and political developments at the international level.

The World Climate Research Programme, co-sponsored by WMO, IOC-UNESCO and International Science Council (ISC), offers a prime example of this coordination and partnership in climate research.

Recent assessments from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) imply that global mean sea level is unlikely to rise more than about 1.1 m within this century but will increase further beyond 2100. Even within the most intensive future anthropogenic greenhouse gas emission scenarios, higher levels are assessed to be unlikely. However, some studies conclude that considerably greater sea level rise could be realized, and a number of experts assign a substantially higher likelihood of such a future.
