World Wetlands Day materials - local, national and international adaptation


How did we do in 2009?

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, look below to see how you did in 2009 - 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
