Qeshm Island hosts World Wetlands Week
Qeshm, Feb 6, IRNA- Khur Khuran wetland hosted the World Wetlands Week celebrations, theoretical and practical workshops and several symbolic programs.

Speaking on the side lines of the closing ceremony of this event, Director General of Qeshm Free Zone Environmental Protection Organization, Sayyed Mohammad Hashem Dakhte told IRNA that this event aims at institutionalizing wetlands' role in sustainable livelihoods of the local society and finding the root causes of damages.

Dakhte said that this event has been organized and contributed by Ramsar Convention on Wetlands as well as Global Environmental Facility (GEF) and Small Grants Program (SPG).

The Convention on Wetlands of International Importance, called the Ramsar Convention, is an intergovernmental treaty which provides the framework for the conservation and efficient use of wetlands and their resources.

The convention was adopted in the Iranian city of Ramsar in 1971 and came into force in 1975. Since then, almost 90 percent of UN member states, from all the world’s geographic regions, have acceded to become “Contracting Parties”.

Currently, 2,186 wetlands in an area covering 200 million hectares are protected by Ramsar Convention.
