Promoting non-governmental organisation involvement with biodiversity conservation

Increasing NGO participation in protection of biological resources
Encouraging non-government organisation participation in biodiversity sustainable use
Many successful efforts to conserve and sustainably use biodiversity have come about through the commitment of conservation and development NGOs. Such organisations will continue to play a crucial role in realising the goals and objectives of the Covention on Biological Diversity (CBD) through the implementation of specific projects and programmes. NGOs will also provide an essential independent monitoring and "watchdog" role, to ensure adherence to the commitments articulated in the CBD. Those with insights into the implementation of specific aspects of the convention will be invaluable in providing advice and expertise to national governments. A particularly crucial role will be played by those NGOs engaged in development work, and in capacity-building and environmental educational and training programmes.
In China, Non-governmental organisations (NGOs), such as the Chinese Society of Environmental Sciences, the Chinese Ecological Society, the Chinese Society for Forestry, the Chinese Society of Agronomy, the Chinese Society of Oceanography, the Chinese Society of Botany, the Chinese Society of Zoology, and the Chinese Association of Wildlife Conservation, play an active role in promoting biodiversity conservation in coordination with the governmental agencies.
