Wetlands International recently signed a contract with the Food and Agriculture Organization (of the UN) for a consultancy in Iran. It is a World Bank-funded Irrigation Improvement project. Wetlands International is asked to execute the environment component of this irrigation project. This component is primarily concerned with preparing management plans for two Ramsar wetland systems [Lake Oroomiyeh in the northwest and Shadegan Marshes on the Persian Gulf, which is fed by rivers including the Tigris]. Dr. Michael Moser will be the international consultant executing the job for Wetlands International. He is already in Iran for his first visit.
