The Northwest Pacific Action Plan (NOWPAP, http://www.nowpap.org/) is an integral part of the UNEP Regional Seas Programme (RSP) initiated in 1974. The overall goal of NOWPAP is “the wise use, development and management of the coastal and marine environment so as to obtain the utmost long-term benefits for the human populations of the region, while protecting human health, ecological integrity and the region’s sustainability for future generations”. NOWPAP was adopted in 1994 and currently has four member states: the People’s Republic of China, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation. The RSP covers in total 18 regions across the world at present.
