Rocky road ahead for China's environmental NGOs

The All-China Environmental Federation (ACEF) has released a report that indicates a difficult road ahead for China's environmental NGOs.
The report says environmental NGOs are facing some major obstacles. Low registration rates, fund shortages, low membership, difficulties in promotion and little participation in monitoring and policy making are key challenges environmental NGOs must address in order to function at their full potential.

Although environmental NGOs still have a long way to go in China they have been instrumental in areas such as energy conservation, dam resettlement, tree planting, public health awareness and biodiversity protection.

With the ACEF report predicting China's number of environmental NGOs and the staff working for them will grow annually by 10 to 15 per cent, the time is ripe for NGOs to forge new frontiers and break away from old mindsets through enhanced collaboration with Chinese businesses, a greater emphasis on research leading to policy recommendations, and the wider use of the Internet as a promotional tool and to attract funding.
