“INBO carries out scientific research to improve biodiversity and its sustainable use, but also investigates the socio-economical aspects and the ecosystem services. Such efforts have only their use if this work is carried out on an international scale, e.g. within the framework of the EU Directives. But being an NGO, Wetlands International can play an important role to push this process further. We hope that Wetlands International will continue to carry out programmes in Europe. We very much support the waterbird counts project and the population estimates reports, since this kind of information is of great importance to us to compare the situation in Flanders and Belgium within Europe and apply the 1% criteria for the Ramsar sites e.g.”
