Restoring wetlands for biodiversity and people

Wetlands occur all over the world and wherever they are, they provide ecosystem services for people and habitat for wildlife. Nevertheless, we have seen massive degradation and loss of wetlands in most cases due to land use change driven by development.

Not all restoration is equally effective. Lessons have been learned on this around the world and evidence for the success (or failure) of approaches has often been documented. This brochure intends to draw attention to the evidence-based approach to wetland restoration. It intends to help planners, designers, and implementors to benefit from what has been learned, to optimise the likelihood of success and the efficiency of achieving this.
