Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews and evaluates the status of regional cooperation relating to marine protected areas (MPAs) and a network of MPAs in the South China Sea (SCS) by evaluating developments in a number of regional organizations and arrangements in terms of their potential role to promote the development of a network of MPAs in the SCS. Regional mechanisms studied are those that have mandates related to the protection of the marine environment and a territorial scope relevant to the SCS. For two reasons, the Coordinating Body for the Seas of East Asia and the Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia have the greatest potential to facilitate the coordination of regional efforts to develop a network of MPAs in the SCS. First, they have a specific mandate for the protection of the marine environment and second, their membership comprises all SCS States.

Keywords: Coordinating Body for the Seas of East Asia; environmental management; network of marine protected areas (MPAs); regional cooperation; South China Sea (SCS)
