World Maritime Day theme for 2013 is: 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.
