  • HKIQEP expresses its deepest condolences to the family and friends of one of our Founding Fellows, Professor Ng Cho Nam, who passed away on Friday 13 December, surrounded by his loved ones, after suffering a stroke. He is amongst the first generation of environmentalists in Hong Kong, joining the Conservancy Association since middle school and was a former Chairman of the Conservancy Association. He has taught, mentored and advised many of the proceeding generations of environmentalists in Hong Kong in his capacity as an associate professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Hong Kong. Since the 1990s, he has served on a number of government appointed advisory committees including the Advisory Committee on the Environment, the Steering Committee on Biodiveristy Strategy & Action Plan, the Environmental Campaign Committee, the Council for Sustainable Development, the Country and Marine Parks Board, the Antiquities Advisory Board, the Town Planning Board amongst others. In 2014, he was awarded the Silver Bauhinia Star by the SAR Government. The influential impacts from his lifelong dedication to environmental protection can be seen through a number of ground breaking initiatives. One of them was the opposition to the KCRC’s Lok Ma Chau Spur Line passing through Long Valley wetland, causing the KCRC to change the overhead railway to an underground line, making a significant contribution to the conservation of the Long Valley wetland. Prof Ng was one of those rare humble environmental leaders capable of striking the much needed balance of environmental protection and conservation against the practical needs for development and implementable solutions. He tirelessly engaged relevant stakeholders to achieve these balances. His contribution to conservation and biodiversity in Hong Kong is indisputable and his legacy can be witnessed all around Hong Kong. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.
