Japan – Korea and WWN meeting

Some of the WWN Committee members met in Nagoya, Japan at the end of October at a meeting organised by RamsarNet Japan and South Korean colleagues.  It gave us the chance to update on WWN’s activities, as well as to start planning for activities leading up to the next Ramsar COP.  The group reviewed our approach and served to reinvigorate the strategy planning process, under the new chair Louise Duff.  Existings member Minoru Kashiwagi, Felipe Velasco and Chris Rostron also attended, with enthuisastic support from Japanese and Korean colleagues, and invaluable input from Lew Young, Ramser Senior Regional Advisor for Asia.
