The present proposal suggest a “tree model” for  conservation of urban wetlands by fair stakeholder involvements. The tree is composed of root system, stem and branches. 
Root : The central government which act as a policy maker and law enforcement agency and a financial aid provider
Stem: local authorities that include provincial level government agencies. These  help channeling basic benefits from the government to the local level by providing expertise, advise and monitoring  for proper management of wetlands
Branches : Communities of residents, school children, youth, welfare and other  organizations that could get  together  to conserve, restore, abate degradation and  monitor wellbeing of wetlands
