National Reports for the 7th meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties

Implementation of the Ramsar Convention in general, and of the Ramsar Strategic Plan 1997-2002 in particular, during the period since the National Reports were prepared in 1995 for Ramsar COP6 

From the first meeting of the Ramsar Conference of the Contracting Parties in 1980, countries have submitted National Reports on their implementation of the Convention. National Reports constitute a vital source of information on the implementation of the Convention at the country, regional, and global levels, and once submitted to the Bureau become public documents.

Of 113 Contracting Parties at the time of COP7, 107 submitted National Reports, 3 did not submit National Reports, and 3, having only just joined the Convention, were exempted from submitting a report -- a return rate of 97.2%.
