Abstract

Meeting the challenge of conserving wetlands requires comprehensive national policies to provide a foundation for domestic action and a framework for international and national cooperation. Such policy is valuable as countries seek to address the management and habitat requirements for wildlife and other natural resources, such as soil and water, as well as human needs. This entry provides highlights of the guidelines and reports on the status of wetland policy development around the world.
