The world is facing climate and nature crises, yet we keep ignoring one of the most effective solutions- healthy wetlands. From rivers to reefs, wetlands are home to 40% of all species while 1+ billion people driectly depend on them for livelihoods.
We need urgent investment in restoring degraded wetlands to tackle the dual crisis and drive sustainable development.
