A glimpse into the interactions between finnish nonprofits and the government, rivals One of the things worth sharing about this workshop is that it provides a glimpse into the interactions between finnish local non-profit organizations, the government, and opposing stakeholders. In addition to local groups (including finland and sweden, and two foreign cases in the united states) reporting on currently implemented plans, experiences and future plans to be implemented, the workshop also included (1) government reports on current and migratory fish restoration relevant regulations, plans and budgets; (2) representatives of members of congress of various parties will publish the time, explaining the attitudes and plans of each party on this issue. The first point is that although the ghost mannequin effect service government report is a bit like a government decree, it is also an opportunity for participating groups to directly express their opinions on government units. For example, finland's water act , which came into force in 2011 , already contains many protection measures for fish, such as when the implementation of projects on rivers (including dams; hydroelectric power plants) will endanger fish stocks and fisheries , not only does the plan need government approval, but the unit responsible for the plan is more obliged to compensate for the harm caused. In other words, the relevant restoration measures, including the exile of juveniles, the establishment of fish passages, etc., are financed by hydropower plants, and these measures also require follow-up effect tracking. However, the groups present at the meeting believed that the current version of the water law is still insufficient. During the discussion time after several government reports, it was proposed that the obligation clause only applies to new projects and needs to be modified and extended to apply to previously built projects. Evaluation of the effectiveness of dams, or fish ladders, requires inclusion, restoration funding, etc. According to the previous experience with the wwf in finland, I think they fully understand how to handle issues. In terms of this seminar, wwf took the initiative to hold this type of seminar and invited the government to participate in the meeting, expressing its position and putting pressure on the government: we wwf have such a position on this issue. In their first presentation at the workshop, they went straight to their findings, saying that 60 percent of finns support that dam removal could be considered if salmon are to come back. In addition, this meeting was held in a conference room in the congress building. The main reason is that in addition to the agenda, which includes the presentation time of representatives of mps from various parties, it is also convenient for mps to listen to the law during the time between the trial and the meeting.
