We are very happy to announce that the ESP Asia Regional Office will officially open on 22 September. The regional office is supported by Gyeonngi provincial government of South Korea and ESP Asian members. The initiative for the regional office was discussed and agreed among members at the First Asian ESP Conference earlier this year. The office will be located in Pyeonghwa nuri park close to the DMZ(demilitarized zone) shared with North Korea and it is a truly symbolic place of “Nature for Peace”. This Regional office will serve as foothold to strengthen the ESP Asian network and to support nature-based solutions promoting ES polices and practices in Asia.
