Demonstration of Chinese estuarine conservation (Est. Project)

Demonstration of Chinese estuarine conservation (Est. Project) 2560 1256 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Project Management Office of Demonstration of Estuarine Biodiversity Conservation, Restoration and Protected Area Networking in China (hereinafter referred to as Est. PMO) – China

The Yellow (Huanghe) and Pearl (Zhujiang) Rivers have contributed to the formation of two of China’s three largest deltas and have been affected by a number of on and off-site development activities that have significantly undermined their ecological structure, function and processes. 

The Est. Project’s objective is to mainstream the conservation of estuarine biodiversity in economic development sector plans and develop a series of “best practices” based on experiences derived from project supported field activities focusing on protected area networks and wetland conservation and restoration in the Yellow and Pearl River Estuaries. 

It will be achieved through 5 Components: 

  • (i) Policy, Planning and Institutional Arrangements; 
  • (ii) MPA Networking and Wetland Restoration; 
  • (iii) Threat Analysis, Mitigation and Monitoring; 
  • (iv) Capacity Building and Increasing Environmental Education and Public Awareness; and 
  • (v) Project Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and Replication of Project Results. 

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Mega-Delta
