Experience Note: Regional Conference on Parliamentary Environment and Sustainable Use of Marine Resources in the Yellow Sea

2006: Attracting high-level political commitment is an ongoing process that many GEF projects must address during implementation. To use these important roles wisely, a mechanism was required to involve the members of the parliamentary organizations. More than 50 persons from the participating countries of the Yellow Sea Project attended a conference, including 14 members from the parliamentary bodies. As a result, the parliamentary members deepened their understanding about the environmental problems in the Yellow Sea, exchanged opinions about how to address its problems, and established a mechanism to advance dialogue and cooperation between the two countries at the parliamentary level. The Yellow Sea parliamentary conference was the first time a Global Environment Facility-funded project has organised such an event with participants from parliamentary bodies participating in the project.
