Adaptation to Climate Change and Conservation of Biodiversity through Conservation and Sustainable Use of Wetlands

As of: March 2019

Objective and activities

The purpose of the project was to draw up and test a strategy for the conservation and sustainable use of the country's wetlands. At national level the project improved the general conditions for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands and built capacity. At local level pilot management plans for wetlands were drawn up and then implemented through investments (e.g. restoration and anti-pollution measures). The knowledge and experience gained from the pilot projects was passed on to experts and decision-makers at national level so that it can be applied on a broad scale.
