A quick post regarding the World Wetlands Day, as we are working with IUCN to support Angola to ratify the Ramsar convention on Wetlands.
Wetlands are considered as source of life and therefore biodiversity. These are lands, permanently or temporarily, flooded by saltwater, brackish or freshwater.
In Angola we are working on 11 potential Ramsar sites covering tropical ecosystems from Congo Basin to desert ecosystems of Kalahari passing by the Zambezi Basin.
We will let you know of the progress in the ratification process.
