3rd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT OF WETLANDS 2018

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.
