Ramsar Convention on wetlands collaborates with LT&C

screen-shot-2016-09-13-at-12-22-02The Ramsar Convention is a multilateral environmental agreement (MEA) adopted in 1971 to provide the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands. There are 169 countries that are signatories to the Convention. Under the Convention, more than 2,200 sites around the world, with an area of more than 200 million hectares, have been designated as Wetlands of International Importance. LT&C collaborates with Ramsar in order to commonly identify and profile examples, where the protection of Wetlands of International Importance are supported by tourism (LT&C-Examples).  We join forces to develop incentives and tools that such examples are getting upscaled and replicated.
