Nice new box for storing your Ramsar Toolkit whilst it's idle

17/06/2000

The so-called 'Ramsar Toolkit' embodies nearly all of the various guidelines that have been adopted by the Conference of the Contracting Parties to assist wetland managers, national authorities, and others in implementing the Convention’s mission and objectives. Formally entitled the Ramsar Handbooks for the Wise Use of Wetlands, the nine brochures are organized along the lines of the three "pillars" of the Convention: 1) The wise use of wetlands; 2) Wetlands of International Importance; and 3) International cooperation.

Nobody wants his or her nine brochures (plus the Convention Work Plan!) to get scattered all over the rec room or go walkabout somewhere in the West Wing of the condo. So the Bureau has created a nice box to hold them in. Many collectors, however, will disdain that lowbrow utilitarianism and just lacquer them up and hang them, with tasteful lighting, just as they are.
