Wetlands, ecosystems at the interface of land and water, have a significant role in ensuring water and climate security, given their role in the water cycle and multiple hydrological functions. The rapid loss of natural wetlands is as much a threat to water and climate security, as is an environmental crisis. Conservation and wise-use of wetlands and preventing loss and degradation of these ecosystems is essential in meeting water and climate security goals, yet is insufficiently considered in policy and planning processes.
Wetlands International South Asia is organising the first webinar of the Silver Jubilee Webinar Series on 16th September, 2021 at 1500 hours (IST) on the theme – ‘Managing wetlands: addressing the challenges of water security and climate change’. The webinar will explore the ways in which wetlands conservation could meaningfully contribute to addressing the challenges of deepening climate and water insecurity in South Asia region.
