To achieve long-term conservation goals and objectives, investment in the knowledge and capacitiy of wetland managers is as critical as investment in direct conservation measures. Without this investment in people at all levels (from government staff to local wetland managers), there will be little chance of securing the wise use of wetlands. In essence, long-term sustainable wetland use and management depend on building essential human and social capital.
This Briefing note, developed by the Specialist Group on Water (WaterSG) of the Scientific and Technical Network of MedWet (MedWet/STN), introduces a cognitive framework for the quantity, quality and timing of water flows required to sustain wetlands in the Mediterranean region. The aim of this note is to support the conservation and the sustainable wise use of Mediterranean wetlands, in accordance with the implementation of the Ramsar Convention. This document includes both theoretical and practical information, reporting on specific case studies from the Mediterranean region, and provides tailor-made management recommendations to support and serve both site managers and policy makers to assist them in developing and implementing adaptation strategies in the face of climate change.
