The next wetlands Conference of the Parties, Ramsar COP14, has been rescheduled. It will now happen in Geneva, Switzerland, on 5 to 13 November, chaired virtually by China.

COP14 was originally to be held in Wuhan, China, later in November. The COVID situation in that country has made that difficult. The updated plan is for China to be the Host country, working together with the Secretariat of the Ramsar Convention in Switzerland as the geographical location.

WLI at COP14

Our presence will be led by the Head of WLI, Chris Rostron, along with Suh Seung-oh and Kim Seongbo of WLI Asia and the Ramsar Regional Centre - East Asia. We are planning multiple activities around COP14, not least the award ceremony for the WLI Star Wetland Centre Awards. Chris will also be involved in activities relating to Wetland Cities, youth, CEPA, and more.
