Senior International Advisor of Iran’s Wetlands Conservation Plan said that lifting anti-Iran sanctions will provide an opportunity to improve international cooperation to conserve wetlands.
Referring to the World Wetlands Day on February 2, Michael Morse said that strong cooperation exists between international institutes and the private sector to conserve wetlands in Iran.
Regarding the establishment of Ramsar Convention on Wetlands in 1971, Iran has been successful in conserving wetlands in both the region and in the world, he said.
Due to rapid climate change, it is essential to increase the remaining developmental projects in other wetlands, Morse said.
Referring to Iranian wetlands as world treasures, he added that special international attentions must be paid in this regard.
