Adaptation of Ramsar's 2014 WWD materials

Since 2002 the Secretariat has made the design files of our WWD materials available to encourage and facilitate the translation and adaptation of our materials to make them more relevant to national and local situations.

We are happy to showcase here the many WWD actors that have taken this opportunity in 2014 and adapted our materials in various creative ways. World Wetlands Day materials' adaptation in:
