Turkey completes Ramsar Information Sheet updating

Turkey’s Ministry of Environment and Forestry has completed the revision and updating of the Ramsar Information Sheets for all of its 12 Wetlands of International Importance. In Resolution VI.13 (1996) the Parties determined that all RISs should be updated at least every six years and with every significant change in the ecological character of the Ramsar sites, in order to provide more recent site data for planners and the public and to allow for monitoring change over time at the sites. The Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention congratulates Turkey and encourages other Parties to redouble their efforts to update their own Ramsar site information.
