Wetlands International

Living reference work entry


Wetlands International is the only global NGO dedicated fully to the wise use of wetlands. Wetlands International is neither a nature conservation organization nor a development one. Instead, Wetlands International connects conservation and development goals. This is because for wetlands, nature and people’s well-being are so inter-dependent. Our dual focus on people and nature, and our broad array of partners and members, both governments and NGOs, puts us in a favorable position to bring many different sectors together to tackle the pressing challenges of our time – food and water security, climate change, and biodiversity loss.
