Abstract
    This Report of the Fourth GOOS Regional Alliance Forum (25-27 November 2008, Guayaquil, Ecuador) summarizes the main plenary discussions and presents the action items arrived at by the representatives of the twelve GOOS Regional Alliances (GRAs). Discussions covered the role of the GRAs in furthering the goals of coastal GOOS, the governance of the GRAs by the IOC and GOOS Programme Office, interactions of GRAs with Large Marine Ecosystem programmes and other programmes. Reports summarizing the achievements of the individual GRAs were presented. A wide variety of systems are moving successfully ahead across the globe under GRA programmes. However the presentations revealed a discontinuity and lack of communication between GRAs. The GOOS Regional Council was discussed and formed by six of the GRAs (joined by two more in January 2009) under the cochairmanship of MedGOOS and EuroGOOS.
