The contents of this Regional Strategy are the collective views of the East Asian partners, including 13 East Asian countries and states that have been involved in the development of this document and participated in consecutive regional workshops from 2008 to 2010. The implementing bodies for future actions are the regional partners described in ICRI’s regional mechanism for East Asia discussed in this document.
This Regional Strategy seeks to complement other existing programs but does not intend to compete with or duplicate existing regional initiatives and programs. ICRI’s unique and informal nature will be used to fill the gaps and reflect open opinions from regional stakeholders to clarify substantial directions and realistically proposed activities. The ICRI East Asia Regional Strategy on MPA Networks 2010 is available English and Japanese.
