On 2 February our planet will celebrate the World Wetlands Day for the nineteenth time. This day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the southern shores of the Caspian Sea. This Convention is also known as the Ramsar Convention and aims to protect this important part of our planet’s ecosystem. In 1997, the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands was designated as the World Wetlands Day.

Wetlands for Disaster Risk Reduction – the theme of the World Wetlands Day for 2017 – aims to stress the role of wetlands in reducing the impacts of such natural disasters as floods, droughts and cyclones.

Over 160 states have joined the Convention, and Russia is one of them. There are 35 wetlands of international importance in the Russian Federation, which have been included in the Ramsar List of Wetlands. Their total area is over 10 mln ha, and they are located within 21 Russian regions.
