Arief Rachman, chairman of the Indonesian National Commission for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), said on Monday here that the ongoing World Ocean Conference (WOC) would produce a global agreement on the world's marine issues.

A joint agreement was expected to be reached to mitigate the negative impact of climate change on the ocean, he said at the opening of a WOC Senior Officials' Meeting.

"The impact of climate change can be reduced by controlling the quality of our seas," Arief Rachman said, adding that UNESCO through Intergovernmental Oceanography Commission (IOC) was taking part in the WOC to make sure that there would be a good coordination on the global marine issues.

He said that through the WOC, the younger generation would be motivated to occupy themselves with marine issues and the government should support them to make marine researches.

"The seas have no boundary and therefore they need joint global coordination," he said.
