Wetlands play an important role in mitigating climate change and conserving biodiversity. The project contributes to improving the management of wetlands in the partner country. It promotes the institutionalisation of an ecosystem approach in four Ramsar areas and the effective implementation of the National Plan for Conservation of Aquatic Ecosystems. The projects will close the gaps in wetland management and carry out capacity development activities. These measures will contribute to the conservation of biodiversity in wetlands and their ecosystem services. At the same time, the project will improve climate resilience and the livelihoods of people living in the catchment areas of the selected sites. As part of the Corona Response Package, ecosystem-based measures are being implemented at three Ramsar sites to support sustainable livelihoods.
