Conservation and Management of Wetlands to Tackle Climate Change
Valencia, Spain, 14-16 February 2024
The “Conservation and Management of Wetlands to Tackle Climate Change” conference will focus on wetlands’ challenges and threats and their significant role in mitigating climate change and preserving biodiversity. The event will also address governance and green job aspects. The conference is tailored to international organisations, civil society, restoration practitioners, managers, university students, and the private sector.
Wetlands in the Mediterranean are essential ecosystems that provide environmental and social benefits but are threatened by degradation, loss, and climate change. Conserving wetlands can regulate local climate, reduce greenhouse gases, and maintain their role in mitigating the greenhouse effect. Proper management is essential to their contribution to the ecosystem. The public’s awareness of wetlands has increased in recent decades, changing society’s perception of them.
The conference aims to provide a platform for individuals to share their work, exchange ideas, network and interact with academics, restoration project implementers, and policymakers worldwide. The conference will showcase new scientific and technical advancements and offer technical tools for the sustainable management of wetlands.
