New on this website: The MedWet Inventory Methodology

The MedWet Inventory Methodology publications are now available o­n the resource center of the MedWet website. Developed jointly by the Instituto da Conservação da Natureza of Portugal and Wetlands International, together with the assistance of a number of other agencies and partners, they capture results of activities undertaken under the first phase of MedWet.

The Methodology has been developed to address extremely diverse nature of the Mediterranean region as well as differences in the resources available to conduct inventories of wetlands. Throughout attention was paid to build o­n existing expertise and techniques yet to develop methods which will provide useful tools for analyzing conditions that apply in the region.
