On June 17, 2022, the website of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) published an English report titled "In the Yellow Sea, a shining example of marine protection".


The report said: More than 20 years ago, South Korea and China began a new partnership to restore and protect the shallow waters between the two countries: the Yellow Sea, a semi-enclosed sea surrounded by mainland China and the Korean peninsula. Because at that time, there were many crises in the Yellow Sea area: first, overfishing and pollution from industry, agriculture and housing - which had exhausted fish stocks; then, many tidal flats in the area - the main feeding grounds for migratory birds - had disappeared due to coastal reclamation. At the same time, biodiversity is also threatened by invasive species and ecosystem changes, such as red tides and nutrient pollution.


In the mid-1990s, in response to these threats, the governments of China and South Korea began working with the Global Environment Facility and the United Nations Development Programme(UNDP) to develop plans for the Yellow Sea Large Marine Ecosystem Project (YSLME).
