World Maritime Day 2013:

Sustainable Development: IMO's contribution beyond Rio+20

The theme was chosen in order to focus IMO's efforts during 2013 on carrying out the commitments made at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, better known as Rio+20, held in June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.


World Maritime Day 2013 will be observed during the week of 23 to 27 September.
