Adapting to COVID-19 lockdown: Virtual Review Workshops on Wetland Assessments
As a step towards development of integrated management plans for the Ramsar sites, a series of online workshops and stakeholder consultations were organised to understand the present status and future strategies for wetland assessments.
Review workshop for Renuka ecosystem services and livelihood assessment being carried out by PSI and Centre for Ecological Development and Research (CEDAR) was organised by the project on 27th May 2020. Current findings of the study were reviewed, and adjustments required in future course of action were discussed.
Such online workshops would continue and subsequently form the basis for establishment of institutional arrangements for integrated management, which is one of the major outcomes of the project.

The Wetlands Management for Biodiversity and Climate Protection project aims to strengthen the institutional framework and capacities for an ecosystem-based integrated management of wetlands of international importance (Ramsar sites) in India. Four Ramsar sites have been selected as pilot sites under the project: Pong Dam and Renuka Lake in Himachal Pradesh, Bhitarkanika Mangroves in Odisha, and the Point Calimere Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu. The project is implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) in cooperation with the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC). This project is part of the International Climate Initiative(IKI). BMU supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. Read More
