INTRODUCTION 1. What the directory aims to achieve The Global Oceans Non-Governmental Organization Directory was put together by the Global Forum on Oceans, Coasts, and Islands to provide a cohesive and current source of information on non-governmental organizations (NGOs) around the world that are involved in furthering the agenda of the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) and the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation related to issues of governance, management, and conservation of oceans, coasts, and small island developing States. The Global Forum was created at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg, South Africa in September 2002, with the aim to advance the interests of oceans-which incorporate 72% of the Earth; coasts-the home of 50% of the world's population; and islands - 43 (22%) of the world's nations are small island developing States which are especially dependent on the oceans. NGOs working with issues of oceans, coasts, and small island developing States have been recognized as crucial participants and partners in the advancement of the goals set forth at the WSSD. The Global Oceans NGO Directory is a web-based directory, allowing it to be widely accessible and easily searchable. It will be located at the Global Forum on Oceans, Coasts and Islands web-site: www.globaloceans.org. NGOs that are included in the Directory have been selected on the basis of the following criteria: 1. the organization is not profitseeking, 2. the organization is non-governmental, 3. the organization’s work, or a portion there of, is marine-focused (this includes a broad range of foci from socio-economics, coastal community development, and poverty reduction to habitat conservation and scientific research), 4. the organization is currently active and in good standing in its community and region of work, 5. organizations in the international section have a global scope and focus, while those in the regional and national are based in, and focus on, issues pertaining to the regional and local level. The Directory represents a work in progress that is to be up-dated as new information is submitted and added. On the Global Forum web-site there is a mechanism for updating existing information and adding new organizations. Any corrections or additions can be submitted for incorporation into the directory by downloading the available word document, filling out the form with pertinent information, and submitting it for review and incorporation into the directory either electronically, by e-mailing the contact person at the bottom of the form, or by mailing it to the Global Forum Secretariat at the address provided. Future and updated versions of the directory will be regularly posted. Partners of the Global Forum are not responsible for the content of the directory. Any mistakes or omissions are the responsibility of the authors of the report. Further, the Global Forum will reserve the right to exclude organizations if they do not generally match the criteria stated above. The Global Forum will rely on the NGOs to provide accurate information and update changes as needed.

2. Directory Structure The Directory is composed of two main sections. The first section lists major international NGOs that are involved in programs related to oceans, coasts, and small island developing States on the global scale. For each organization listed, there is a short description of the mission, goals, and history, followed by the contact information for the organization's representative offices around the globe. The second section presents active regional and national NGOs working with issues of oceans, coasts, and small island developing States in different regions around the globe. Rather than focusing on global conservation and management of the oceans, these NGOs are primarily and foremost concerned with the marine-related problems in the region and nations in which they are based and operate. Some organizations work on sustainable development in environmental issues, and poverty alleviation in local coastal communities. After a short description of the aims, objectives, history, and mission of each organization, there is contact information provided for its regional or national offices. A categorical and alphabetical index will be available on the Global Forum website to enable easy browsing and searching, along with the complete Directory for those wishing to download the entire document. 3. Target Audience The Directory is for use by non-governmental, intergovernmental, international and governmental organizations, as well as the public sector, individual activists and other groups, in order to help identify partners and colleagues in the areas of oceans, coasts, and small island developing States around the globe. The directory will also aid in the formation of networks and partnerships, facilitating organizations’ efforts in the implementation of the targets and goals set forth at the World Summit on Sustainable Development on oceans, coasts, and small island developing States.

4. Funding The Global Oceans NGO Directory has been undertaken and funded within the framework of GEF/MSP: Fostering a Global Dialogue on Oceans, Coasts, and SIDS, and on Freshwater-Coastal-Marine Interlinkages, and with additional resources from the Gerard J. Mangone Center for Marine Policy, University of Delaware, College of Marine and Earth Studies.

Alliance for Zero Extinction
http://www.zeroextinction.org/index.htm The Alliance for Zero Extinction is an initiative led by a group of biodiversity conservation organizations to identify and protect the last remaining habitats for the world’s most endangered species. The Alliance aims to stem species extinctions, beginning with terrestrial vertebrates whose populations and distributions are best known, and including other species as soon as sufficient information becomes available to assess their threat level. By starting with the species that are most endangered, the Alliance aims to create a front line of defence against extinction that will hold until broader scale conservation efforts can restore sufficient habitat to enable populations to rebound.
