This text provides a collection of documents related to ocean affairs and the law of the sea. It is issued each year by organizations, organs and bodies of the United Nations system. Documents of the UN General Assembly, ECOSOC and its regional Commissions, the UN Secretary-General's Informal Consultations, PrepCom ISA/ITLOS, UNCED, UNEP and UNCTAD are included first, followed by the documents of specialized agencies and other autonomous organizations of the UN system, including FAO, IAEA, ILO, IMO, UNESCO/IOC and WMO. Documents which were issued in the course of 1992 are reproduced, while other relevant documents are listed. In view of developments as a result of the UNCED, this volume contains a "Special Report" by co-editor Barbara Kwiatkowska on the "Ocean-Related Impact of Agenda 21 on International Organizations of the UN System in Follow-Up to the Rio Summit". A chronological table of selected ocean-related post-Rio UN meetings and conferences up to the year 2000 is annexed to this special report.
An extensive index of keywords facilitates access by the reader to the complex matters dealt with by organizations covered by the yearbook, as well as to the information concerning individual states, regions and international instruments. The editors have been guided in the preparation of this collection by several outstanding experts, members of the yearbook's Advisory Board, including the yearbook's inventor Ambassador Shabtai Rosenne, and Judge Andres Aguilar Mawdsley, Edward Brown, Guenther Jaenicke, Douglas Johnston, Lee Kimball, Thomas Mensah, Judge Shigeru Oda, Francisco Orrego Vicuna, Tullio Treves, this documentary yearbook has proved to be useful in facilitating access by the community of scholars and practitioners in ocean affairs and the law of the sea to essential documentation. The entry of the 1992 UN Law of the Sea Convention into force on 16th November 1994 and progress in the implementation of Chapter 17 of Agenda 21, make continuation of this assistance of particular significance in the years to come.
