Protecting Global Wetlands, 1945 to the Present

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to provide the first in-depth environmental history of international wetlands conservation post World War II. Focusing on the key concepts of animal migration, ecosystems, and wise use, and grounded in the important case study of the Ramsar Convention, the project expects to generate new theoretical and applied insights about wetlands conservation and expertise, and nurture exciting new directions in environmental history. Anticipated outcomes include a clearer understanding of why wetlands became a focus of international conservation and the consequences. This will bring significant benefits to wetland managers and communities by contextualising competing wetlands futures and via policy recommendations
