Wetlands Management for Biodiversity and Climate Protection

01 Sep 2018 to 31 Aug 2025


Wetlands play an important role in climate and biodiversity protection. Therefore, the project contributes to improving the management of wetlands in India by promoting the ecosystem-based integrated management of wetlands of international importance (Ramsar sites) through capacity and network building in seven states. Specific project objectives include the development of planning and monitoring tools, capacity building, implementation of green recovery measures (post COVID-19) and strengthening of cooperation networks. The closing of management and capacity gaps and the active participation of different actors at central, state and local levels will lead to better protection of the biodiversity and ecosystem services of wetlands, strengthen their climate resilience and improve the living conditions of people in the catchment area of the selected sites.
