Fifth Ministerial Forum


2015 is a milestone year as it serves as the target year for the commitments set by the East Asian Seas region in line with the implementation of the SDS-SEA coinciding with other key global targets (i.e., MDGs, Hyogo Framework of Action, etc.). In light of new developments, challenges, commitments and lessons learned, the Ministerial Forum adopted an updated SDS-SEA with new targets and schedule that is aligned and more responsive to the emerging needs/concerns of the region while staying committed to its vision of establishing a sustainable East Asian Seas.

Recognizing the value of balancing social, environmental and economic aspects to achieve sustainable development, the Fifth Ministerial Forum also served as a platform for the Ministers to discuss with key corporate groups and donors in support of the scaling up of SDS-SEA implementation.
