Convention in Hungary. Further designations may take place, but are not planned in such number that a strategy or priorities should be identified (over 2.6 % of the country's territory is already designated to the list of Ramsar sites). The Ramsar National Committee discussed the question in detail at its meeting on 19 February 2008, and agreed that further designations may be possible for sites holding habitat types that are under-represented on the global list of Ramsar sites, as well as sites where major wetland restorations will have taken place.

STRATEGY 1.4: Cross-sectoral recognition of wetland services. Increase recognition of and attention in decision-making to the significance of wetlands for reasons of biodiversity conservation, water supply, coastal protection, integrated coastal zone management, flood defence, climate change mitigation and/or adaptation, food security, poverty eradication, tourism, cultural heritage, and scientific research, by developing and disseminating methodologies to achieve wise use of wetlands.

The bulk of wetland conservation in the U.S. is incentive driven and carried out by the private sector.Perhaps the most notable feature of federal wetland protection policy today is that there is no specific, comprehensive national wetland law. Rather, federal statutes regulating or otherwise protecting wetlands have evolved piecemeal over the years, and often utilize laws originally intended for other purposes (Mitsch and Gosselink, 1993; GAO, 1991). As a result, jurisdiction for wetland protection is spread over many agencies and federal wetland protection is not as effective or cohesive as it could be. Federal, state, and local government regulatory, or permitting, programs are essential tools in the nationwide effort to protect wetlands but, although essential they do not, provide sufficient protection. This gap is addressed by non-regulatory means such as incentive programs which are undertaken by the private sector. Recently, partnerships to manage whole watersheds have developed among federal, state, tribal, and local governments; nonprofit organizations; and private landowners. The goal of these partnerships is to implement comprehensive, integrated watershed protection.

'Riparian Ecosystem Restoration of the Lower Drava River in Slovenia (LIVEDRAVA)', a five year project (2012-2017) aims to preserve and enlarge populations of species listed in Annex I of the Birds Directive (birds typical for lowland rivers) and Annex II of the Habitats Directive (fishes and beetles) by managing alluvial forest habitats (Annex I, Habitats Directive) along the Lower Drava River in Slovenia. The project also aims to improve cooperation between the most important stakeholders along the river and to inform the public about the natural value of these Natura 2000 sites and the importance of their conservation (http://ptice.si/livedrava/home/project/general-2/?lang=en).

In 2013 Wetland Day was devoted to a seminar on "Wetlands and their meaning - swamp and wetland example". Nature Conservation Agency in cooperation with local municipalities held a creativity contest "Wetlands my eyes." Competition culminated in Lubana Wetland Complex Ramsar site. February 2013 in Lubana Wetland Complex were held classes on wetland and natural values, as well as a meeting with landowners/ fishermen’s, during which they were aware of the wetland protection and management issues. In Kemeri National Park, all February is designated as a wetlands month to allow for a wider audience tell about wetlands and their inhabitants, and the importance of preservation of biodiversity. In 2012 and 2013 the

There are some cases of rice cultivation with consideration for migratory birds and other endangered species, brand naming of those rice and selling of them at higher price. Supportive measures for such efforts have been taken. Among Ramsar sites in Japan, similar efforts have been addressed at Kabukuri-numa and the surrounding rice paddies (in Osaki city), Watarase-yusuichi (in Oyama city), Biwa-ko (in Takashima city), and Lower Maruyama River and the surrounding rice paddies (in Toyooka city)

Reduction Project: Increasing Resilience of Coastal Ecosystems, which was implemented by the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) work was conducted within wetland protected areas island-wide. This included the ecological restoration of 6.7 ha of mangrove forests in the Portland Cottage and Hellshire areas within the Portland Bight Protected Area (PBPA) which includes the Portland Bight Wetlands and Cays Ramsar Site (PBW&C-RS). Activities such as the preparation of the sites to restore and improve the hydrology to facilitate tidal flushing and natural regeneration overtime; planting of approximately 6,500 nursery grown red and black mangrove seedlings and planting 1,500 wild stock propagules. The project installed artificial reefs (150 wave attenuation devices and 19 modular turbulence generators) in PBPA and Negril Marine Park (NMP) on the west coast of the island. Data loggers to monitor sea temperatures were also installed in five marine protected areas across the country (this included the PBPA, Palisadoes-Port Royal Protected Area and Ramsar Sites [PPRPA&RS]). An additional activity undertaken by this project was the planting of 1,500sq.m. of sea grass in the NPA.

The problem of wetlands' conservation and water management are state priorities, these questions are included in the long-term economical development of the country in the direction of "green economy" that is associated with the problems of sustainable development, energysaving, the fight against poverty and etc. In the same way constructed actual state programm of sustainable using of natural resources "Green development". Convention can be better alinged with concrete problems tying up to more detailed workout of issues of government programs' implementation at the local level, through the decrees of akimats (local government offices) and joint planning of wetlands using by local communities, land users and specially protected nature areas (SPA).

STRATEGY 1.9 Invasive alien species. Encourage Contracting Parties to develop a national inventory of invasive alien species that currently and/or potentially impact the ecological character of wetlands, especially Ramsar Sites, and ensure mutual supportiveness between the national inventory and IUCN’s Global Register on Invasive Species (GRIS); develop guidance and promote procedures and actions to prevent, control or eradicate such species in wetland systems.

conservation in Bhutan started with WWF and local NGOs, such as the Royal Society for the Protection of Nature, on board, but the Division also collaborated with the Ramsar Secretariat, ICIMOD, IUCN, FAO and GEF. These collective efforts have helped us in leveraging funds and technical assistance, while working on the wetland conservation. 4) The World Wetland Day (2nd February) has become widely known in Bhutan and is celebrated throughout the country, which was not the case prior to 2012. This particular day has been marked as an important occasion in Bhutan with the involvement of Government, NGOs, INGOs, etc.

(GloBallast Program) is an initiative of the IMO and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) aimed at reducing the transfer of aquatic invasive species through ballast water. This program has developed and implemented a communication plan on invasive species from ballast water in port areas and a risk assessment of ballast water and harbor biota. The GloBallast program also includes the development of capacity building, legislation and regulatory activities related to the implementation of management measures for ballast water, as well as a system of conformity, monitoring and execution, in addition to regional cooperation with neighboring countries. As part of the GloBallast Program communication and information dissemination activities, aquatic species introduced into Brazil, such as the golden mussel (Limnoperna fortunei), the Indian Ocean’s crab (Charybdis hellerii) and a bivalve mollusk (Isognomon bicolor) were identified. In 2005, the Brazilian Maritime Authority published NORMAN 20 (reviewed in January 2014), which regulates the oceanic replacement of ships’ ballast water, the use of antifouling paint on the hulls and the filling out of a form for information regarding ballast water, whose data were used to map the most vulnerable ports in the country.
