Ramsar Toolkit, Third Edition




The 'Ramsar Toolkit' embodies most of the guidelines that have been adopted by the Conference of the Contracting Parties (at COP7 and COP8) to assist wetland managers, national authorities, and others in implementing the Convention's mission and objectives. Formally entitled the Ramsar Handbooks for the Wise Use of Wetlands, the first edition was published in 1999. The second edition, published in 2004 has been expended to 14 volumes:

  • Wise use of wetlands
  • National Wetland Policies
  • Laws and institutions
  • River basin management
  • Participatory management
  • Wetland communication, education and public awareness (CEPA)
  • Designating Ramsar Sites
  • Managing wetlands
  • International cooperation
  • Wetland inventory
  • Impact assessment
  • Water allocation and management
  • Coastal management
  • Peatlands

The 2nd edition of the Toolkit will be available shortly on CD-ROM and is free of charge. The Ramsar website allows users to download the handbooks Adobe Acrobat PDF format.
