Transboundary Ramsar sites

Collaborative international management of adjacent Ramsar sites


Pursuant to Article 5 of the Convention and Resolution VII.19 (1999) on international cooperation:

Increasingly, Ramsar Contracting Parties are designating their new and existing Ramsar sites as Transboundary Ramsar Sites, meaning that an ecologically coherent wetland extends across national borders and the Ramsar site authorities on both or all sides of the border have formally agreed to collaborate in its management, and have notified the Secretariat of this intent. (Ramsar Manual) This is a cooperative management arrangement and not a distinct legal status for the Ramsar sites involved.
