The ocean, our common heritage, is key to sustaining all humankind on the planet. It shapes Earth’s climate and influences the distribution of ecosystems, biodiversity, and thus food availability. The Western Pacific region is of vast social and economic importance with over 70% of the population living in and relying economically on coastal areas, approximately 54% of the world's GDP generated and more than half of the world’s annual merchant tonnage traversing here. Meanwhile, the ocean in the region is among the richest and most productive marine areas in the world as a home to some 70% of the world’s coral species, and is universally recognized as one major influence on the global climate system.
































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































Humans, however, have put the ocean at risk of irreversible damage by unregulated exploration and development, increasing pollution, climate change and ocean acidification. The ocean is becoming more acidic at a rate not seen for the last 20 million years, with significant impacts on the marine food chain, biodiversity, food security and livelihoods of coastal community. As such, it is imperative to strengthen sound scientific research and systematic observations to underpin the sustainable governance of the ocean.
































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO, established in 1960, is the United Nations body with a mission to promote international cooperation and coordinate programmes in marine research, observation, services, and capacity development in order to learn more about the nature and resources of the ocean and coastal areas and to apply that knowledge for the improvement of management, sustainable development and the protection of the marine environment.
































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































It is within this context that the IOC Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific (WESTPAC), since its establishment in 1989, has organized and co-sponsored a series of statutory WESTPAC international scientific symposia as a unique regional platform to advance marine scientific knowledge, and catalyze multi- and cross-disciplinary collaboration with a view to addressing challenges this particular region is facing.
































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































































Upon the kind offer of the Government of Vietnam, the WESTPAC 9th International Scientific Symposium will take place in Nha Trang, Vietnam, 22-25 April 2014. This Symposium is entitled “A Healthy Ocean for Prosperity in the Western Pacific: Scientific Challenges and Possible Solutions”, hosted by the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), and organized by the Institute of Oceanography, VAST; National IOC Committee for Vietnam and IOC Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific (WESTPAC).
