APFED Showcase Casebook on Innovative Activities and Good Practices

 Asia Pacific is at the forefront of global discussions on sustainable development and the melding of environment and economic policies.  From access to clean water to biodiversity conservation and sustainable agriculture - community involvement and investment when solving environmental challenges is crucial to managing local resources. In China, local communities are utilizing new methods of mediation via public participation in protecting environmental rights of citizens.  In Viet Nam, a small conservation research and development center is working to develop effective rice-husk gasification techniques to mitigate climate change.  Through local marine and coastal zoning management, communities in the Philippines are effectively protecting sea-based livelihoods.  Rural households in Pakistan are enabled to create and maintain water-purifying systems for better health.

 The APFED Showcase Booklet of Good Practices and Innovative Activities demonstrates empirical lessons and valuable insights into local innovations in the areas of climate changes, biodiversity and ecosystems, waste management, water conservation, capacity development and stakeholder empowerment. By sharing these innovative activities, UNEP hopes to offer solution options to other communities and increase, helping to put Asia Pacific on the path to sustainable development from the ground-up.
