Connecting wetland centres across the world

Asia regional initiatives

WLI Asia is one of the most active of the WLI networks, with several WLI Asia conferences held already, active exchanges between wetland centres and a committed steering group.  We have also developed a downloadable WLI Asia brochure, both an English version and a Chinese version.


The Ramsar Regional Center – East Asia (RRC-EA) is happy to announce that 6th Wetland Link International (WLI)-Asia Conference will be held on 6-10 November 2017 in Saga, Japan.

RRCA-EA would like to invite you to the conference and hope we can share;

  • Good practices in Wetland visitor/education/information centres
  • Knowledge and ideas on wetland management
  • Networks and activities among the centres

It would be great chance to meet other WLI-Asia members and exploring WLI-Asia network.
Furthermore, the WLI-Asia conference will be held back to back with Asian Wetland Symposium and this will be good opportunity to meet and discuss with other wetland stakeholders in Asia. The announcement and registration form can be downloaded here:
Please submit your registration form to by 29 September 2017.

Best regards,

WLI Global / WLI-Asia / Ramsar Regional Center – East Asia
