Adi represents Nature Trust (Malta) at the 9th European Ramsar Meeting

Adi Associates represented Nature Trust (Malta) at the 9th European Ramsar Meeting held in the city of Olomouc in Czechia between 19th and 23rd March 2018. The Ramsar Convention is an international treaty for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands and the European Ramsar Meeting is a preliminary meeting for European countries held prior to, and to inform, the 13th Meeting of the Conference of the Contracting Parties (COP) to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands to be held in Dubai in October 2018.

Nature Trust (Malta) is part of the MedIsWet Project. This project brings together NGOs and institutions from nine different Mediterranean countries. The project aims to identify small wetlands around the Mediterranean Basin and to create a common inventory for these areas. These inventories are not an end in themselves; the inventory will be a tool for environmental protection. The project might also contribute to the creation of a methodology that can be applied to the Mediterranean coastal wetlands and Mediterranean countries, and subsequently to other islands’ wetlands around the globe.

The Olomouc meeting revolved around presentations and discussions on the draft resolutions to the 13th COP Meeting. The final result of the meeting was the submission of the European recommendations on draft resolutions to the 54th Ramsar Standing Committee.

Nature Trust (Malta) presented a poster in relation to its participation in the MedIsWet project and on the captive breeding programme for the reintroduction of Aphanius fasciatus (Maltese Killifish; Bużaqq) at Il-Ballut ta’ Marsaxlokk.

The Olomouc meeting was an opportunity to showcase Nature Trust (Malta)’s work and to network with other NGOs, institutions, and national focal points. Concurrently, it was an opportunity to be part of the formulation of the resolutions to be presented to the 54th Ramsar Standing Committee.
