With 2 billion people relying on its resources, the East Asian seas have nourished rapid economic growth during past decades, which has unfortunately occurred at the expense of ocean health.

This initiative articulates a novel approach of cross-sectoral partnership in designing, conducting and delivering “the science we need for the ocean we want”. Through interdisciplinary research, we propose to examine the trajectories of six model East Asian coastal ecosystems over the past 50 years and predict their future (30-year) direction. The initiative enables effective integration of science, governance, and society to fundamentally change the business-as-usual development model of the coastal zone.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade programme Ocean Cities, an international network of cities in harmony with the marine environment (OC-NET)

Start Date: 01/01/2022
