An important part of our work is directed towards the Convention of Parties to the Ramsar Convention, or Ramsar COP, the large meeting that happens every three years.
COP14 is due to happen in Wuhan, China, in November 2021. WWN will be taking part as much as possible given the likely disruptions and restrictions on travel.
WWN’s strategic approach to COP14
- Support Youth Engaged in Wetlands to participate.
- Present findings from the 2020 citizen science wetland survey
- Promote the values of IUCN Resolution 019 on the natural flow of water at Ramsar COP14.
Materials from the Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention.
The Ramsar Convention’s Secretariat is releasing guidance and materials for COP14. These include the most recent timeline:
|November 2021||14th meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties (COP14)|
|August 2021||COP14 documents published|
|May 2021||59th meeting of the Standing Committee (SC59)|
|February 2021||Submission of proposals for draft resolutions|

The Convention’s Regional Pre-COP meetings are likely to first take place online and then for two days in Wuhan just before COP.
