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.   To see our strategic plan 2016-18, please click here.
