Korea NGOs Yellow Sea Partnership Workshop


The marine and coastal ecosystems in the Yellow Sea are under threat from environmental and natural resource degradation due to rapid economic expansion and increased anthropogenic activity in the coastal areas. Successful co-operation in restoration and protection of the marine environment and sustainable use of marine and coastal resources in the Yellow Sea requires the active participation of all stakeholders who are utilising resources or have responsibilities in managing the marine environment in the Yellow Sea. It is essential to strengthen closer co-operation in order to protect the marine environment and promote the sustainable use of marine resources in the Yellow Sea, for the mutual benefits of our people and for long-term improving relations amongst the countries in the region. NGOs in Korea are conducting conservation/awareness activities in Yellow Sea, interested in conservation of Yellow sea and a potential partner to join and support YSLME activities.
