Publication Type: 

The 25th Anniversary publication of Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA) highlights the sustainable coastal development efforts of PEMSEA partners over the past quarter century. The multi-sector, interdisciplinary approach applied in the design and implementation of integrated coastal management (ICM) programs in East Asia has generated a wealth of knowledge and experiences in policy and functional integration that cut across coastal use sectors, disciplines, levels of government, and stakeholders, as well as spatial and temporal scales.

This 566-page publication seeks to provide the reader with:

  • A comprehensive discussion of the ICM system backed by 47 case studies;
  • A series of case studies written by local leaders, managers and practitioners, natural and social scientists, academicians, private sector, and partners from nongovernment organizations;
  • Good practices and lessons learned to support replication and scaling up of ICM in the region; and
  • An operational modality that other regions of the world can consider adopting and applying.
