Folder Water & wetlands Indicators Workshop, Tour du Valat, 3-4 October 2013

MedWet, the Ramsar Convention’s regional initiative for the Mediterranean, has mandated Tour du Valat in 2008 to develop the Mediterranean Wetlands Observatory (MWO), in order to monitor and evaluate the state and trends of wetlands in the Mediterranean and to develop the knowledge on their multiple values. Its eventual goal is to improve the conservation and management of wetlands by disseminating information on their status towards a broad audience, especially the MWO key targets: political decision-makers and the public at large.

It has three objectives, namely :

• Provide timely and quality information on Mediterranean wetlands status and trends.

• Track threats to Mediterranean wetlands and identify actions to promote their conservation, wise use, and restoration.

• Assess the level of consideration of wetlands in the context of sustainable development in the Mediterranean.
