Seven developing countries -Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippine, Thailand and Vietnam - in South-East Asia has received training to help implement key IMO marine environment protection treaties at a workshop in Singapore (28-30 May).

Under the Marine Environment Protection for Southeast Asia Seas (MEPSEAS) Project project, launched last year, participants are gaining the skills to train others in their countries on how to apply IMO measures to protect seas in the region.

Through the MEPSEAS Project, IMO is helping to give this unique region the protection it needs.

The workshop is focusing on regulations in the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL); the Anti-Fouling Systems Convention; the London dumping of wastes at sea convention and protocol; and the Ballast Water Management Convention.

South-East Asia is dominated by the sea. With extensive coastlines and about 30% of the world's sea space under their jurisdictions, the countries of the ASEAN region have a vital influence on the health of the oceans.
