Building a sustainable future
Linking wetlands with catchments
Wetlands Action's Functional Landscape Approach is balancing ecosystem services in wetlands and their catchments
With global rises in temperature and the increasing unpredictability of rainfall, climate change has the potential to have a major impact on wetlands. However, wetlands can play a vital role in buffering the wider effects of climate change on the human population.
In many cases wetlands are seen as critical areas for conservation due their support of biodiversity, while in other cases they are recognised as important agro-development resources.
Wetlands are so valuable that they often attract major concentrations of people who derive their livelihoods from the resources wetlands sustain.
Wetlands provide a range of benefits and functions for people and the environment.
