As of: May 2018
Objective and activities
The objective of the project is to support Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines in respect to jointly develop climate-related spatial and development plans and its effective implementation. As a result the three states of the Sulu-Sulawesi Marine Ecoregion successfully coordinate measures under a joint action plan and work together to implement cross-border projects concerned with marine protected areas, sustainable fisheries and species conservation.
