Strategic Action Programme for the South China Sea

During the Project Development Phase from 1996 to 2001 and in accordance with the GEF Operational Strategy activities were undertaken at the national and regional level to prepare national reports of water-related environmental issues and problems; a Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) (UNEP SCS/TDA ver. 3); and a Strategic Action Programme (SAP). These documents were submitted to the Thirteenth Intergovernmental Meeting of COBSEA (UNEP/(WATER)/EAS IG9/3), which endorsed the draft SAP. This Strategic Action Programme was prepared in collaboration and cooperation with other regional institutions, organisations and bodies including: Food and Agricultural Organisation of the UN; South East Asia (START) Regional Centre; The South China Sea Informal Working Group at the University of British Columbia; the IOC Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific (WESTPAC); and the GEF/UNDP/IMO Regional Programme for the Prevention and Management of Marine Pollution in the East Asian Seas. First published in Thailand in 2008 by the United Nations Environment Programme.
