The UN Atlas of the Oceans provides information about oceans and sustainability for policymakers, scientists, students and resources managers. The website contains information on ocean uses, such as fishing and tourism, and on issues related to sustainable development, such as food security. It is catagorised by geographical area and includes maps, statistics and online databases. It supports the blueprint for sustainable development of the oceans adopted by UN agencies at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
