ASSESSMENT AND IDENTIFICATION OF POTENTIAL WETLANDS TO BE RESTORED IN MEDITERRANEAN COUNTRIES. ONLINE SURVEY

Wetlands in the Mediterranean are subject to strong pressures that in many cases cause their destruction or degradation. There is a consensus among the conservation community about the need to take urgent action to restore these wetlands that have undergone ecological change. This need is strongly recognized by the Ramsar Convention and the MedWet Initiative.
 
In the framework of the MAVA Foundation Operation Action Plan “Coastal Wetlands”, WWF-Spain coordinates the project “Strengthening the restoration of Mediterranean Wetlands for nature and people". An initial action is to conduct an assessment and identification of potential wetlands to be restored in each country.

To carry out this evaluation and on the occasion of the World Wetlands Day, an online survey has been launched with the aim of identifying wetlands that are being restored or that need to be restored and also to define priorities. The target audience includes any person or organization involved in wetland conservation, including site managers, technical staff, national and subnational government services, NGO, scientists, individual experts, etc. Anyone who can provide feedback to help identify potential wetlands for restoration in the region is invited to participate in the survey.

Please answer the questions on the basis of your own personal knowledge, according to the present wetland condition. We anticipate that it will only take five minutes of your time.   

Do not hesitate to share this survey with any person or organisation who could be interested in contributing to this assessment.
