LME:LEARN - LARGE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS

UNDP/GEF Yellow Sea LME Phase II Project

Project objective: To achieve adaptive ecosystem-based management of the Yellow Sea Large Marine Ecosystem (YSLME) by fostering long-term sustainable institutional, policy and financial arrangements in accordance with the YSLME Strategic Action Programme (SAP)

The UNDP/GEF Yellow Sea Large Marine Ecosystem Project is a transboundary intiative that began in 2005 as a response to these threats. Its overall aim is to help China and South and North Korea restore the Yellow Sea’s natural resources and achieve sustainable ecosystem-based management for generations into the future. This second phase of the project, UNDP/GEF YSLME Phase II, provides assistance to the two countries to implement the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) and support institutionalization of the YSLME Commission. This mechanism is envisaged as a permanent non-legally binding framework which will continue to implement the SAP into the future after the life of the project.

Below is one of the activities implemented by the project in collaboration with partners.
