The forthcoming IWRB Beard Meeting would be considering a proposal for linkage with the Asian Wetland Bureau, and would also feature a workshop on change in ecological character. Program of Media Wetland Exposure Activity (February 2) The Candaba Wetlands is an extremely important staging and wintering area for migratory birds, from October up to April of every year when it regularly supports between 5, birds. It is also a significant part of the East Asia- Australasian Migratory Flyway.

A world without wetlands is a world without water. That is why we are dedicated to their conservation and restoration. We do this by understanding and tackling the underlying causes of wetland loss and damage. Our knowledge-base and advocacy enables action to safeguard and restore wetlands, and to use them in sustainable ways.   Whereas the main driver of biodiversity loss in Western Asia and Oceania is climate change, in South-East Asia, North-East Asia and South Asia crop production is the biggest threat, says the report. Forests, alpine ecosystems, inland freshwater and wetlands, as well as coastal systems are identified as the most threatened Asia-Pacific ecosystems.

In the South African portion was placed on the Montreux Record – a list of Ramsar wetlands in need of urgent conservation action – following considerable degradation of the salt marsh component of the system. The collapse of the salt-marsh is the result of a combination of impacts, both at and upstream of the estuary. Summary of action.

Integrating the Value of Nature into Our Economies From coral reefs in the South Pacific to tropical forests in the South East Asia, Asia Pacific is home to a rich spectrum of biodiversity on which many lives and livelihoods depend.

These natural ecosystems--and the biodiversity contained within--provide people in the region with food, clean water, flood protection and opportunities for income. 2. Clean water Wetlands act as the Earth's filters, cleaning up water in a number of ways. Food supply Rice is the staple diet of nearly 3 billion people - half the world's population.

It is grown in wetlands across Asia and west Africa, and in the United States. Theoretical Framework 9 4. The predecessor organizations of Wetlands International have worked for wetland conservation since Integrating wetlands into water management was the initial focus of work in South Asia, implemented in the form of long-term projects at two major Ramsar sites of India, Loktak Lake (Manipur) and Chilika (Odisha).

This campaign promoted the need for wetland conservation, produced a vast array of communication materials, and set out a clear wetland conservation programme. Since then, the multiple roles of wetland ecosystems and their value to humanity have been increasingly understood, as documented in the TEEB report on Water and Wetlands.
