The brochure for MedWet – Nov 2014
Les acteurs réunis dans le cadre de la réunion thématique “Biodiversité & milieux humides”, constituée en Observatoire national des milieux humides, élaborent collectivement et publient des rapports chiffrés faisant le point sur une thématique particulière relative aux milieux humides. Cette première publication sur l’agriculture, l’aquaculture et les milieux humides a pour objectif d’apporter des données objectives permettant un débat éclairé sur les interactions complexes entre les milieux humides et l’agriculture, […]
This report is the first report of the Mediterranean Wetlands Observatory (MWO) which was created in 2008 under the framework of the MedWet Intiative in order to monitor and assess the status and trends of Mediterranean wetlands and to increase knowledge on their various benefits.
The report presents the results of a three year analysis of the status and trends of wetlands in the Mediterranean and the pressures they face.
This book is the result of a four-year research project (2007-2011) carried out by Med-INA, the Mediterranean Institute on Nature and Anthropos with the financial support of the MAVA Foundation.
The project concerned mainly the implementation in the Mediterranean Region of the Ramsar Guidance on Culture and Wetlands, disseminated in late 2008. Analysing various sectors of human activities and more than 20 wetland sites, the book investigates the benefits that can result from following the objectives and actions proposed by the Ramsar Guidance.
Prior to developing a regional wetlands Observatory, a preliminary step is to assess the monitoring situation, needs and expectations from countries representatives and other targeted users.
This document includes questionnaires, results and analysis of the survey conducted between 2009 and 2011 among 16 Mediterranean countries.
The photographic exhibition Eden: Marshlands of Mesopotamia took place in the framework of the Rodos Ecofilms Festival, 20-25 June 2006.
Thirty seven color prints with portraits of Marsh Arabs, village life, wildlife and landscapes taken during a Biodiversity Survey organised in 2005 were displayed in the exhibition. The photographer, Mr Mudhafar Salim participated in the Survey undertaken as part of a Canada-Iraq Marshlands Initiative (CIMI) to restore the wetland.
