World Wetlands Day 2020

Wetland biodiversity matters for life to thrive.

Biodiversity loss denotes the unprecedented disappearance, degradation and unsustainable use of the ecosystems on which we - and all other living things - depend on to survive and thrive.

2020 marks a watershed for action on biodiversity. Decisions taken this year on a global road map for biodiversity must be the impetus for new thinking and unprecedented action.

It is time to acknowledge wetlands’ critical role for biodiversity - and the solutions they provide on climate change and sustainable development.
It is time to fulfil commitments to stop the loss of the world’s wetlands.

Since its inception, the production and distribution of materials for World Wetlands Day have been financially supported by the Evian Project funded by the Danone Group.
