WLI was represented by Chris Rostron at the Ramsar Standing Committee 53 (SC53) which met at the Secretariat offices in Switzerland in the last week of May, and looked at plans for the next Ramsar Conference, as well as many areas of work that the Ramsar Convention is undertaking.  WWT/ WLI attended to discuss the CEPA (communication, education, participation and awareness) strategy, and WLI is recognised as one of the main delivery tools for this.  It was also a good chance to talk to many of the wetland experts that came along, including the Ramsar regional representatives for Europe and Africa, Ramsar’s CEPA representative, WWF, IUCN and BirdLife, and the new Director General Martha Rojas-Urrego.
