ICZM Sabah Events
A series of milestone events has taken place in the implementation of the ICZM Project in Sabah. These are mainly workshops and seminars during which progress of the various activities have been reported to a broad forum of coastal zone development stakeholders and during which structured discussions have provided essential directional feed back to the continuation of the project activities. These events have furthermore had important functions in disseminating information, in increasing awareness around ICZM and environmental management issues and in establishing and consolidating essential networks between government agencies, within the civil society and between government and non-government organisations and last but not the least between concerned individuals.
