LWMEA project appraisal document

The South China Sea is a locally, regionally and globally significant body of water bordered by countries that are experiencing rapid population and economic growth and facing similar major environmental challenges. This bio-geographic region is one of the world’s most biologically diverse shallow-water marine areas. However, this biological richness is seriously threatened by two major environmental problems - over-fishing and land-based anthropogenic pollution. Without wide-scale preventive action, livestock production would become the single most important source of organic and chemical pollution of the main catchments draining into this international water.
