Trends, drivers and impacts of Mediterranean wetlands biodiversity: how to halt its decline?
For MedWet managers and National Focal Points
Thursday, 25 November 2021
Covering an area of more than 2 million square kilometers, the Mediterranean Basin is a vast region that harbours an exceptional biodiversity. The diversity of species and the high rate of endemism makes the Mediterranean the second largest biodiversity hotspot in the world. Unfortunately, since 1970, the Mediterranean region has lost 50% of its natural wetlands and it is losing biodiversity at an alarming rate.
In this Webinar on Biodiversity untiled ‘’Trends, drivers and impacts of Mediterranean wetlands biodiversity: how to halt its decline?’’, you will learn more about the recent trends in Mediterranean biodiversity and the possible solutions to reverse its decline, as well as the Invasive alien species in the Mediterranean wetlands.
The webinar on ”Biodiversity” is the second of a series of 5 dedicated webinars per year for wetland managers that aim to stimulate knowledge sharing and managers’ participation, while addressing various topics and challenges related to wetland conservation and management in the Mediterranean region. These webinars are held by top scientists and experts on wetland-related issues from the Mediterranean region.
It has to be noted that this webinar was organized under the MAVA OAP M3 Project: “Disseminating knowledge and sharing Experience for promoting wetlands conservation around the Mediterranean”.
