WWNWorld Wetland Network (WWN)

The World Wetland Network is a global network of Civil Society Groups & NGOs working on wetland conservation. We were set up at Ramsar COP10 in Changwon in 2008, and have been active at every Ramsar COP since then.  WWN helps NGOs to maintain contact with each other at and between Ramsar meetings, but also helps with information exchange, sharing of best practice and lobbying on specific wetland issues.

WWN enables smaller NGOs to arrive at Ramsar COPs (Conferences of the Parties) well prepared for the meeting and more able to fully participate in the Ramsar meeting itself.  To see our strategic plan 2016-18, please click here.

World Wetlands Survey 2017

Working with the Society of Wetlands Scientists (Ramsar section) and the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, we have now delivered the first part of the Global Wetland Survey, with over 600 responses from across the world, identify key issues for wetlands.  A huge thanks to all those that took part! See our survey page for initial details.
