National Reports submitted to the 8th meeting of the Conference of the Parties

10/08/2009

Implementation of the Ramsar Convention in general, and of the Ramsar Strategic Plan 1997-2002 in particular, during the period since the National Reports were prepared in 1999 for Ramsar COP7.

From the first meeting of the Ramsar Conference of the Contracting Parties in 1980, countries have submitted National Reports on their implementation of the Convention. National Reports constitute a vital source of information on the implementation of the Convention at the country, regional, and global levels, and once submitted to the Bureau become public documents. National Reports are posted here in Adobe Acrobat PDF format, each in two files.

Statistical overview

Of 133 Contracting Parties at the time of COP8, 114 have submitted their National Reports, 9 were new Parties and not expected to submit reports in their first year, and 10 Parties failed to submit their National Reports -- a return of 91.9%.
