Directory of Wetlands of Vanuatu 2014

This is an update of the wetland inventory for Vanuatu (Scott 1983) which aims to strengthening their national baseline and state of knowledge of wetlands. Such baseline information would be valuable for informing conservation decisions, raising awareness of the importance of wetlands, influencing public perception of wetlands, creating ongoing monitoring, revealing trends over time, identifying priority sites for conservation management (e.g. for designating Ramsar Sites or other types of Protected Areas) and as a tool for planning and implementing effective conservation interventions for wetlands, especially in light of the impacts of climate change.
