Act now on wetlands for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030)
All major global policy agreements conclude: wetlands are vital ecosystems in the landscape and are indispensable to achieve a sustainable and secure world. This policy brief sets out the link between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – and, in particular, the Goals on Zero Hunger, Clean Water and Sanitation, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Climate Action, Life Below Water, and Life on Land – and the conservation and restoration of wetlands. It also includes recommended approaches for implementation of the SDGs and a series of case studies showing the innovative approaches we use to transform the world.
