Carrying the theme, “Building a Blue Economy: Strategy, Opportunities, and Partnerships in the Seas of East Asia,” the EAS Congress 2012 will bring to the fore the crucial role of coastal and ocean resources in support of the global commitments to enhance human welfare and environmental sustainability while pursuing economic growth. In particular, it will provide participants with the prospect of identifying contributions, progress and achievements in the governance of regional/sub-regional seas within the framework of the Sustainable Development Strategy for the Seas of East Asia (SDS-SEA), which are the essential building blocks for a blue economy, as well as new opportunities and the intergovernmental and multi-sectoral partnerships, which are required in order to realize the full potential of the ocean economy of East Asia.
