Abstract
    This report contains a detailed analysis, both retrospective and prospective, of the Unesco Major Interregional Coastal Marine (COMAR) project. The analysis was made by the Consultative Panel at its fourth session, held 15-17 December 1986 in Dakar, Senegal. The report cites achievements during the period 1985-1986 and review plans for the various COMAR components for the triennium 1987-1989. Activities under review include: (1) co-operation with ICSU and its various member bodies, such as SCOR, IABO and the new International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), on relevant scientific activities as well as on traditional knowledge and management of coastal systems; (2) regional programmes launched in Lain America and the Caribbean, Asia and the Pacific, the Mediterranean and the Red Seas, and Europe; (3) interregional activities, in particular the comparison of Atlantic and Pacific tropical ecosystems.
