Summary

Wetlands are valuable water sources that have multiple functions and services. The wetland ecosystems are an integral part of river basins and catchments having their unique hydrological cycle providing water for drinking, space for food production, a medium for water and soil purification, a sink for carbon storage, and habitats for biodiversity among a host of other benefits. Although many conservation efforts have been launched, over the years, in conjunction with global and national policies and guidance documents, countries still struggle to conserve wetlands and degradation continues to occur at a rapid rate, especially in urban and peri-urban environments.
