Our Work

PEMSEA commits to assisting its partners achieve the Sustainable Development Strategy for the Seas of East Asia (SDS-SEA) goals. As the pioneer of integrated coastal management (ICM) in East Asia, PEMSEA provides integrated solutions for effective management of coastal and marine areas, supporting  sustainable economic growth and blue economy, ecosystem rehabilitation and protection and adaptive and resilient communities. ICM creates positive impacts on communities through food security and livelihood opportunities, pollution and waste management, water use and supply management as well as civil society empowerment, including the youth.

Through our work, we have achieved over 17% coverage of the region’s coastline under ICM, impacting more than 42,000 km of coast and over 146 million people living in coastal and watershed areas.
