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.

  • We are preparing a Strategic Plan 2016-20 to guide our activities.
  • All WWN regional representatives, members and wetland NGOs are invited to share your ideas.
  • What do you think our network should be doing to best serve your needs? How can we support NGOs and promote their role in wetland conservation and wise use?

I have attached the WWN Strategic Plan template.

Please take a moment to think about worthwhile goals, strategies and actions. Write them in the template and return to me by the end of December.
