Wetlands International at UNFCCC COP28

What are wetlands?

Wetlands occur wherever water meets land. These unique habitats include mangroves, peatlands and marshes, rivers and lakes, deltas, floodplains and flooded forests, rice-fields, and even coral reefs. Healthy wetlands are central to solving the interconnected climate, biodiversity, and water crises.

Wetlands International is a global not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the conservation and restoration of wetlands. Our vision is a world where wetlands are treasured and nurtured for their beauty, the life they support and the resources they provide.

Wetlands International not a partner of Blue Forest

December 6, 2023

It has come to our attention that Blue Forest – a UAE-based carbon project developer working on mangroves – has been representing Wetlands International as a partner in promotional materials, which is inaccurate and misleading. Wetlands International has not entered into any formal partnership or collaboration with Blue Forest and we have requested that they immediately cease and desist from using our organisation’s name and logo in any of their communication.
