Recognizing the importance of promoting global efforts underway for sustainable development of the oceans, the Göteborg Award Selection Jury is pleased to distribute a special volume, Sustainable Development of the Worlds Large Marine Ecosystems during Climate Change on the occasion of the presentation of the 2010 Göteborg Award. In keeping with the sustainable development theme of the Göteborg Award, contributors to the commemorative volume are focused on actions proposed and underway by high profile public figures, scientists, and policy experts for reducing climate warming and advancing sustainable development of marine goods and services. The books opening three chapters by world renown leaders argue for coalitions of industries, governments, and citizens to lead actions for promoting sustainable development of world resources and implementing reductions in greenhouse gases. The chapters that follow describe actions underway in a global movement to restore and sustain the worlds Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) and their multi-trillion dollar annual contribution to the world economy.
