Ramsar Policy Briefs are prepared by the Scientific and Technical Review Panel
. They are short summary papers which gather information on a particular wetland-related subject or issue to facilitate decision making. They provide policy options and an evaluation of these options for a specific audience of policy makers.
Policy briefs can also support broader advocacy initiatives. They make scientific and technical findings accessible to non-technical audiences including journalists, diplomats, administrators and researchers, with recommendations which they can act on.
