The Ramsar Strategic Plan 2016-24

The Contracting Parties approved the Fourth Ramsar Strategic Plan for 2016-2024 at COP12. The Plan lays out a new vision under the Convention mission, four overall goals and 19 specific targets which are designed to support the efforts of Parties, partners and other stakeholders in preventing, stopping and reversing the global decline of wetlands.

Implementing the Ramsar Strategic Plan and its goals and targets will also contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets.

The posters below summarize the Strategic Plan and show how it links to the SDGs.
