Studying role of oceans as a carbon sink

Recognizing the important role that oceans and all seas play in attenuating potential climate change, Agenda 21 recommends that IOC and other relevant competent United Nations bodies, with the support of countries having the resources and expertise, should carry out analysis, assessment and systematic observation of the role of oceans as a carbon sink.
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the UN Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.
