The 4th ISCMW is coming again on September this year! This biennial event was successfully held on last September 2018, in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, where it has become a platform for discussion and sharing of new ideas and inputs on wetlands conservation on a global level!
Keep calm and stay posted for more info on the 4th ISCMW 2020!
Please feel free to surf the website for the last Symposium here.
There are many challenges to protecting and managing urban wetlands which are known for their esthetic values, biodiversity and their provisioning of ecosystem services. Despite their potential, there has been a continued and rapid erosion of urban wetlands associated with climate change, city expansion and pollution. Understanding these impacts on wetland functions will be helpful in evaluating suitable management practices which remains a huge challenge for wetland managers, scientists and civil society organizations. The 3rd International Symposium on the conservation and management of Urban Wetlands is designed to initiate discussion among key stakeholders from the public, private, academia and civil society organizations in recognizing wetlands’ larger benefits, addressing the threats and evaluating best practices including governance for urban wetlands.
