Overall aims of the centre

Our aim is to promote conservation of wetlands and wetland associated nature conservation and management plans. We are also keen on promoting conservation education and exchange of global and local experience in ecological conservation.

Description of the centre

 

Work Areas

Main CEPA work area

Wetland workshops, forums, network building, education programmes and advocacy

 

Top three successes

Provided a locally rare platform where different stakeholders (land owners, developers, green groups, consultants, academics and operators can gather together through forum and workshop for wetland conservation issues despite the difference in interests and concerns. Positive feedbacks from the participants were received.

Top three challenges

We believe and pursue a win-win partnership for nature conservation and other stakeholders, and to successfully initiate the dialogue among different stakeholders and government officials is crucial but is just a start. We are still learning from overseas examples (e.g. UK, Taiwan) where the partnership has been built up successfully.
