Ramsar Briefing Note 7, the “State of the World’s Wetlands and their Services to People: A compilation of recent analyses,” is now available online in English, French and Spanish, and contains significant Mediterranean components.
The Briefing Note provides an overview of selected aspects of the status and trends of wetlands and the loss of ecosystem services drawn from recently published analyses, as a contribution towards assessing the effectiveness of the Ramsar Convention. The negative trends shown by recent studies should serve as a call to all those involved to avoid further wetland loss and degradation and to strengthen wetland assessment, monitoring and restoration.
