Dear participants,

As usual, the Ramsar Convention’s 10th meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties in Changwon, Republic of Korea, will provide the opportunity to hold a number of side events on relevant global and regional thematic issues. To be considered for hosting a side event, please complete this form and send it back to the Ramsar Secretariat either by e-mail ( or fax (+41 22 999 0169) no later than 10 August 2008.

Please be aware that, because rooms and time slots for side events are limited, requests arriving at the Secretariat after the deadline may no longer be considered and that, in fact, sending us a request in time does not yet guarantee that your proposed side event can be approved. Preference will be given to topics which are of high relevance for Contracting Parties and COP10-related discussions. The Secretariat will send notice that your request has been approved or not within one month after the deadline.

We look forward to receiving your ideas and initiatives and wish to thank you in advance for your active participation, which will undoubtedly stimulate interesting discussions and thereby add great value to this meeting of the Conference of the Parties.

Please fill out the form fields in the attached Word document.
If you cannot open Microsoft Word, please use the PDF version instead.
