Keynote presentations at Board of Members meeting
The keynote technical presentations at the recent Board of Members meeting were grouped into four priority goal areas of our work, namely Wetlands and Global Water Agenda, Wetlands and Ecological Networks, Wetlands and Livelihoods, and Wetlands Knowledgebase.
These priority areas are in line with Wetlands International’s new strategy from 2005. Four keynote speakers were invited on the basis of their expertise in the respective areas and each speaker gave a global overview of the topic. They were supported by staff of Wetlands International who presented existing case studies, highlighting WI efforts and achievements, and more importantly future challenges towards addressing wetland issues under each of the goal areas.
