Hong Kong and Biodiversity Conservation: 10-year Review Against The Convention on Biodiversity
Published: on October 4, 2021
This report by the Hong Kong Bird Watching Society (HKBWS) brings to a close a ten-year programme to monitor Hong Kong’s performance against its responsibilities under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Initially developed by public policy think tank Civic Exchange and conservation experts from key sectors of the community. Recognizing the importance of disclosing the performance of Asia’s World City, the HKBWS took up the task of producing regular reports using information that was either publicly available or sourced under Hong Kong’s Freedom of Information regulations. These five Headline Biodiversity Indicator Reports, published in 2011, 2013, 2015, 2018 and 2021, provide the hard core of data and observations that underpins the high-level assessment presented in this Ten Year Review. The 10-year Review was funded by ADM Capital Foundation.
