Restoring Mediterranean Wetlands: The new policymaker’s playbook for sustainable management and ecosystem restoration by 2030 has been released.
The Wetland-based solutions project gathers together a powerful network of expert organisations working to preserve and restore Mediterranean wetlands. Our EUROSITE member Tour du Valat is one of the main project partners.
Through better planning and understanding we can increase wetlands resilience and start improving water quality and restore the wetlands vital ecosystems. This handbook will guide you on developing and implementing wetlands restoration initiatives.
Experts in the field share experiences and case studies of integrated restoration using Nature-based Solutions and how to set clear objectives, identify priorities and undertake continuous evaluation as well opportunities to transfer knowledge and upscaling, such as in this case study on the MedIsWet projects throughout the mediterranean sea.
It also contains tools, methodologies and checklists for planners to ensure they’ve thought of everything that needs to happen before, during and after any wetlands restoration project.
This handbook has been prepared in the framework of the project “Strengthening the restoration of Mediterranean Wetlands for nature and people” funded by the MAVA Foundation. It has been coordinated by WWF Spain, MedWet and Tour du Valat in partnership with PIM Initiative and MEDSEA. The project is part of the Wetlands-Based Solutions initiative funded by the MAVA Foundation.
