 Greetings from SPA-ENVIS RP, New Delhi!

Wetlands are marshy, flooded areas and swamps which support a variety of life forms. Both natural and artificial wetlands help maintain and enhance biodiversity and ecological health. World Wetlands Day has been observed on February 2, each year since 1997. The annual event aims to raise awareness about the importance of wetlands, which apart from contributing to biodiversity, also help in mitigation of climate impact and availability of freshwater.

Theme for World Wetlands Day "2nd February, 2022".

This year, the theme is “Wetlands Action for People and Nature” to draw attention to the sustainable use of wetlands and promote conservation efforts.
