Compass delegates at the 2nd Asia Park Congress
Compass participated in Malaysia's 2nd Asia Park Congress (APC) on May 24-29, 2022. The conference was jointly organized by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Sabah Parks, Malaysia.
The 2nd Asia Parks Congress is a gathering of practitioners from Asia’s protected areas and other interested stakeholders. The theme for this year’s conference was " Parks for Nature and People" to enhance the relationship between nature and society. The conference brought protected area experts and the broader community to share experiences, learn from one another, and address the challenges and opportunities together. Along with addressing the growing pressures on the region's protected areas, it included plenary sessions, working group discussions, side events, and an exciting range of field trips.
Compass supported the financial expenditure of two Bangladesh Forest Department officials and two of its staff as delegates to the conference.
