The Regional State of Coast Report for the western Indian Ocean (WIO) is the first comprehensive regional synthesis to provide insights into the enormous economic potential around the WIO, the consequential demand for marine ecosystem goods and services to match the increasing human population, the pace and scale of environmental changes taking place in the region and the opportunities to avoid serious degradation in one of the world’s unique and highly biodiverse oceans.




It is with profound gratitude that we want to thank UNEP for the guidance, leadership and the support that was extended to the Secretariat for the Nairobi Convention in the preparation of this report. Secondly, we wish to express our sincere thanks to WIOMSA and its membership for the technical support in the production of this report.
