Chapter Summary

Globalisation poses many questions in the context of the World Ocean. This chapter focuses on some issues of particular importance. When talk about globalisation and oceans, at the heart of the matter is the increasing and profound negative impact of changes in the global climate on the functioning of oceans and their ecosystems, coastal and island ecosystems in particular, as well as the issue of corresponding changes in the oceans that affect and accelerate negative changes in the global climate. The application of ecosystem-based management (EBM) and integrated coastal and ocean management (ICOM) approaches to the management of activities in the seas and oceans, including areas beyond national jurisdiction, is essential for addressing the challenges and consequently for attaining sustainable development of the oceans. Stability, peace and security in the world are highly dependent on the existence of unambiguously defined national boundaries, including maritime boundaries.

Keywords: ecosystem-based management (EBM); globalisation; integrated coastal and ocean management (ICOM); World Ocean; world peace
