Departing message from Delmar Blasco, outgoing Secretary General of the Ramsar Bureau: "The role of the four International Organization Partners (IOPs) of the Convention: BirdLife International, IUCN - The World Conservation Union, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and Wetlands International, cannot be overestimated. In leaving my post as Secretary General, I would like to emphasize the value of this cooperation between the Convention and its IOPs, which is bringing so many benefits to the cause of wetland conservation and wise use. I thank both the CEOs of the four IOPs for their support for this special partnership and the many officers dealing with Ramsar issues for their hard work, and I encourage the Convention and the IOPs to further strengthen the effective collaboration that already exists among the five partners." Wetlands International would like to thank Delmar Blasco for a successful collaboration and wish him all the best in his future career.
