Description of the centre
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.
