This publication summarizes the results of the Twelfth Programme Steering Committee (PSC) Meeting of the GEF/UNDP/IMO Regional Programme on Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA), held at the Waterfront Insular Hotel, Davao City, Philippines, from 1 to 4 August 2006. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources of the Philippines (DENR) hosted the Meeting. The 12th PSC Meeting marked the completion of an important milestone of the Regional Programme, presenting four major achievements over the past 12 years which include: a) The enhancement of coastal and ocean governance in the region; b) The development and adoption of the Sustainable Development Strategy for the Seas of East Asia (SDS-SEA) as the region’s common framework for coastal and ocean management; c) The forging of a partnership arrangement between and among various stakeholders in the region; and d) The strengthening of efforts in on-the-ground implementation of activities related to environmental management and integrated coastal management (ICM). These successes provided impetus for the development of regional mechanisms for the implementation of the SDS-SEA and for the transformation of PEMSEA into the PEMSEA Resource Facility (PRF). The Meeting was attended by delegates from PEMSEA participating countries namely: Cambodia, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, People’s Republic of China, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. A country representative from Lao PDR also participated in the Meeting.
