World Wetlands Day materials - local, national and international adaptation

How did we do in 2008?

Adaptation of Ramsar's WWD materials

For World Wetlands Day 2003 the Ramsar Secretariat launched a new initiative - making the design files of our WWD materials available on CD-ROM – to encourage users with the appropriate software, or access to it, to print large numbers of copies for distribution, to translate the text into local languages, or customise the publication in other ways, making it more relevant to local situations. Having met with some success in the last few years (read more here on WWD 2003, WWD2004, and WWD2005, (WWD 2006 was not one of our best and no translation page exists for this year), and WWD2007. And WWD 2008? Look below - another great success and we thank you all for your enthusiasm and creativity. The full reports from almost all of these contacts on the WWD reports page.

Please note: if you have used our design files and we have not recorded this below, please send us an email at
