Description

The Pakistan Wetlands Project (PWP) aims to promote the sustainable conservation of freshwater and marine wetlands and their associated globally important biodiversity in Pakistan. The Programme strategy is based on two sub-sets of objectives. The first will provide the required policy, institutional, technical and financial framework and generate positive public support essential for the mainstreaming of wetlands conservation. The second involves the design and implementation of progressive, participatory management plans for four independent Demonstration Complexes, each chosen to be representative of a broad eco-region in Pakistan. The project includes specific mechanisms to secure financial sustainability and enhanced replication and proliferation of viable wetlands management interventions in a nation-wide, on-going wetlands conservation initiative.


The main objective of the project is to promote the sustainable conservation of freshwater and marine wetlands and their associated globally important biodiversity in Pakistan.
