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 second webinar of the Silver Jubilee Webinar Series on 20th October, 2021 at 1500 hours (IST) on the theme – The future of wetlands in urban spaces. The webinar will explore the ways in which wetlands conservation could be integrated in policy making, programming and planning for sustainable urbanization in South Asia region. The 90-minute virtual session will have speakers reflecting on their experiences and recommendations for managing wetlands for achieving water and climate security in South Asia region.
