CHAPTER 8. KEY WETLAND MANAGEMENT INITIATIVES
Remarks in this section link the information provided by the Specialist Study with the final content of the Regional Plan.
Conceptualization of key wetland management initiatives was begun during the Specialist Study period, continued through the finalization of the Regional Plan, and was completed during preparation of prefeasibility studies. During this process, the wetlands theme came to be seen as but one facet of several broader concerns, for (a) biodiversity in both wetland and upland settings; (b) water quality management; and (c) development of flood- and erosion-affected villages.
Five of the Regional Plan's eight strategic thrusts include initiatives addressing these concerns. Initiatives which address wetland management are marked with an asterisk (*).
