The Northwest Pacific Action Plan was adopted in 1994 by the four Member States, namely the People’s Republic of China, Japan, the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation as a part of the UNEP Regional Seas Programme. The implementation of NOWPAP is financed mainly by contributions from the Members.
The Intergovernmental Meeting (IGM) is the high-level governing body of NOWPAP that provides policy guidance and makes decisions. Hosted annually, it is made up of senior representatives of the NOWPAP Members.
In accordance with the IGM decisions, Regional Activity Centres (RACs) were established between 2000 and 2002 to start their activities afterwards. Regional Coordinating Unit (RCU) was set up in Toyama, Japan and Busan, Korea, in November 2004.
