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.
