11th meeting of the Ramsar Convention (COP11) 6-13 July 2012 in Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest, Romania - Wetlands International will press for adoption of resolutions at the Ramsar Conference of Parties that call upon countries to take action on some of the most pressing challenges facing wetlands, such as energy production and pesticide use in rice fields.
