  • Support capacity development relating to the integration of natural and cultural values and livelihoods associated with wetlands.
  • Participate in an RCN Thematic Group, actively contribute to the development of the Partnership’s workplan in that area, and act as a link between your organisation and/or constituency and the RCN, to foster a two-way flow of information and ideas.
  • Participate in the development of policy and guidance on culture, livelihoods and wetlands, within the context of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
  • Contribute case studies for an upcoming global report on culture, livelihoods and wetlands.
