Coastal cities are among the most populated areas in the world with over half of the global population living in coastal zones. The APEC Sustainable Coastal Cities Symposium was conducted virtually from 24 to 26 November 2021 aimed at addressing the crucial topic of sustainability in coastal cities.

This report contains the presentations and summary discussions at the three-day symposium covering a range of topics from government policy, involvement of non-governmental and private sectors and technologies relating to sustainability.

In-depth findings from the symposium are compiled in another report titled, Best Practices and Recommended Policies for Optimising the Plastic Supply Chain in Southeast and East Asia.
