Regional Seas describes UNEP’s program of that name. Four out of its 18 regional programs target developing Asia.
Websites of bilateral and multilateral international development agencies contain a wealth of information about programs of marine and coastal ecosystem conservation. Among the bi-laterals, those of USAID, (ex) AusAID, GIZ and DfID are particularly interesting and relevant to developing Asia. Among the multilaterals, the resources of ADB, UNEP, UNDP and World Bank stand out. Several international NGOs such as The Nature Conservancy, WWF, IUCN or Conservation International have been among the pioneers of ecosystem based management and ecosystem conservation and their websites contain a number of important lessons and observations.
