Information Management

The New Strategic Direction of COBSEA (2008-2012) describes the initiation ot a COBSEA Coordinating Centre (CCC). The CCC is intended to provide increasing information exchange and assess and identify coastal and marine environmental management measures and lessons-learned for the benefit of COBSEA and its member countries.

The CCC also intends to use the gathered information to develop overviews of the state of the marine and coastal environment.

The development of an East Asian Seas Knowledgebase

During 2006 and 2007, some of the necessary preparations for the establishment of an East Asian Seas Knowledgebase were undertaken. A pilot East Asian Seas Knowledgebase was developed and presented to the COBSEA member countries at the First East Asian Seas Knowledgebase Workshop, Singapore, 4-5 April 2007.

The second phase development of the East Asian Seas Knowledgebase will incorporate the recommendations made by the workshop. The work is being undertaken in close collaboration with the Tropical Marince Science Institute, National University of Singapore.

The development of an East Asian Seas Environment Outlook

The development of a first state of marine environment report for the region, the East Asian Seas Environment Outlook (EASEO), was initiated in 2007 through the identification of EASEO partners. The EASEO development will take place during 2008 and 2009 in close collaboration with national experts from the COBSEA member countries and partner agencies working on coastal and marine environment in the East Asian Seas region.
