New publication: Wetlands for the Future


The Ramsar Secretariat is pleased to announce the launching of the publication “Wetlands for the Future Fund: Benefitting Wetland Management and Conservation in Latin America and the Caribbean” prepared by the Americas Team of the Ramsar Secretariat and funded by the Fish and Wildlife Service and the State Department of the United States of America. This document highlights the contribution that the Wetlands for the Future Fund (WFF) has made over the past 12 years to the on-the-ground implementation of the three pillars of the Ramsar Convention as well as to the Ramsar Strategic Plan. It compiles the outcomes and lessons learned of many successful projects in the thematic areas of Training & Capacity Building, Awareness-Raising Activities, Documentation, Wetland Management and Tools, Academic and Research, and Networking.

We encourage the Latin American and Caribbean countries to make use of this tool for strengthening their capacity to manage their wetland resources, but we also hope that the experiences reflected here can be helpful for Ramsar practitioners, not only in the Neotropics, but also in other Ramsar regions of the world, as we work together to achieve our mission and objectives at the global level.

The publication is here.
