PEMSEA at 20 Years: Partnerships for our shared seas

 

Bringing together East Asian countries in the last two decades, Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA) continues to be in the forefront in offering concrete strategies to achieve the region’s shared vision for sustainable oceans and coasts. 

Now in its 20th year, PEMSEA remains committed in forging collective partnerships and in empowering local governments and coastal communities around the region.

PML has a long standing relationship with PEMSEA, it has a seat on the PEMSEA Partnership Council and was amongst the first group of non-governmental organizations to be formally recognized as PEMSEA Partners for the implementation of PEMSEA’s Sustainable Development Strategy of the Seas of East Asia.

To mark its 20th anniversary PEMSEA are inviting stakeholders to join them in celebrating “People, Partners, Progress: 20 Years of Partnership for Our Shared Seas”. Anniversary stories and activities are featured online and PEMSEA are welcoming contributions in the form of articles, messages, or photos that can be featured in the anniversary website.

PEMSEA have also created a timeline which offers a brief look into their achievements over the past years, from its humble beginnings as marine pollution demonstration project in 1993 and now as a leading international organization promoting the sustainable development of region’s oceans and coasts. Photos and videos are also included to commemorate these milestones.
