Objective of the Project

The project will contribute to ascertain the current state of wetlands in the Czech Republic, identify measures to ensure their sustainable use and raise public awareness on the importance and function of wetlands.

The overall objective of the project is to collect an up-to-date information on wetland resources in the Czech Republic, evaluate the wetlands status, its trend (wetland loss and/or degradation, restoration, effects of climate change, agriculture and extraction) and to adopt measures in order to implement efficient wetlands management and their conservation and wise use. An important component of the project is to share the information gained amongst all sectors of the society that have an impact on wetlands well-being, and also to raise the public awareness on wetland values and functions (amongst school children and teachers as well as public at large). Very important part of the project is development of international cooperation and as well as implementation of several international conventions on biodiversity.
