Advancing Yellow Sea Conservation Efforts and Creating an MPA Network in China

Grantee WWF
Grant Amount 600000
Duration Three Years

With Oceans 5’s support, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is working to increase the effective designation and management of marine protected areas (MPAs) in the Yellow Sea Ecoregion in China via the creation of an MPA network, which will be supported by adjacent communities, in part as a result from development efforts consistent with blue economy principles.

Through partnership with key stakeholders, WWF’s overarching goal is to support China’s efforts to protect 30% of the Yellow Sea Ecoregion by 2030 and to provide regional contributions to the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
