|Environmental Public Awareness Handbook - Case Studies and Lessons Learned in Mongolia (EPAP, 1999, 88 pages)|
Gratitude goes out to all those who have had inputs to this publication.
First, the participating NGOs and government agencies in the Mongolian Environmental Public Awareness Programme without whose enthusiasm Mongolia's recent experiences with EPA would not have provided the substance for this publication. See Annex 4 for a list of participating organizations and their projects
Second, thanks goes out to Mongolia's Ministry of Nature and Environment who provided support, space and their own EPA experiences. And to EPAP staff, Mr. G. Sumiya and Ms. Ts. Davaasuren, whose dedication, determination and enthusiasm for the project ensured its success.
Third, the donors of the Programme - the Netherlands Government whose core funding got the Programme underway, and UNDP and the Australians whose added support allowed the plethora of EPA proposals and projects, and more ideas and experiences than anyone could ever have imagined. As well, the Tacis Environmental Awareness Raising Project based in Moscow who contributed funds to support media coverage of the projects - an EPA awards show and a special media tour with the BBC.
Fourth, the consultants who undertook the evaluation of most of the projects, Vielka Garibaldi, Lochin Ulziijargal and Damdin Ganbaatar, also deserve credit for producing a comprehensive and balanced report despite enduring great ordeals interviewing target groups in isolated corners of rural Mongolia. Their Evaluation Report became the basis for Chapter 3: Case Studies and Lessons Learned in Mongolia
And finally, a very special word of thanks to Sylvie Goyet, the international advisor to EPAP, who's on-going input to the Programme and undaunted encouragement made it happen. Many of her ideas and experiences are included in this publication, and she also provided much appreciated editorial support. Her periodic e-mails asking, "How is that book coming? I want to see it!" kept this book on track.
