A world without wetlands is a world without freshwater

Wetlands are resilient ecosystems that play a crucial role in water purification, water storage, flood control, and groundwater recharge.

They are a vital nature-based solution that can help us mitigate and adapt to the worst impacts of climate change. To secure a water-wise world, we need to prioritise their protection and restoration.
