GEC's 20th Anniversary

Year 2018 marks our 20 years of building partnership for the environment.

It also marks two decades of GEC’s accomplishments.

We are growing stronger and reaching further, working strategically side by side with the governments, NGOs, corporate partners and local communities for the betterment of our environment.

Faizal Parish
Founder and Director of GEC

GEC was established in 1998 in Malaysia to work on environmental issues of global importance. The Centre is registered as a non-profit organisation but works regionally and internationally both directly and through many partners. GEC supports information exchange and capacity building as well as undertakes strategic projects particularly in developing countries. It works in partnership with other like-minded agencies worldwide.

Support and commitment given by funders and partners of GEC has enabled GEC to continue to advocate for protection, rehabilitation and sustainable use of forests, mangroves, peatlands and rivers with a key focus on community involvement and biodiversity conservation as well as education empowerment awareness and capacity building with various organisations, sectors and the public.

Significant achievements have been made despite many challenges lie ahead in conserving and protecting the environment and natural resources. Below are selected achivements accomplished since 1998:
