Ramsar COP14 to be held in Geneva

The next wetlands Conference of the Parties, Ramsar COP14, has been rescheduled. It will now happen in Geneva, Switzerland, on 5 to 13 November, chaired virtually by China.

COP14 was originally to be held in Wuhan, China, later in November. The COVID situation in that country has made that difficult. The updated plan is for China to be the Host country, working together with the Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention in Switzerland as the geographical location.
