Northern Ireland: Every six years, the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) in partnership with the Department for Infrastructure (DFI), produces a river basin management plan for each river basin district within Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland has a layered approach to public involvement. The NI Water Framework Directive (WFD) Stakeholder Forum will be invited to join the DAERA WFD Strategic Planning and Resources Group to review progress on an annual basis. River basin planning also involves anyone who is interested in, or may be affected by, the water environment and the way in which it is managed. Catchment Officers continually work with stakeholders across the River Basin Districts (https://www .daera-ni.gov.uk/articles/delivery-and-public-participation).

7. Note that, for the purposes of this national reporting to the Ramsar Convention, the scope of the term “wetland” is that of the Convention text, i.e. all inland wetlands (including lakes and rivers), all nearshore coastal wetlands (including tidal marshes, mangroves and coral reefs) and human-made wetlands (e.g. rice paddy and reservoirs), even if a national definition of “wetland” may differ from that adopted by the

› There is a cross-sectorial site management committee for each Ramsar Sites. All Ramsar Site management plans included support and promotion of socioeconomic activities as part of community benefits in wetlands management. For example, the 'Community Investment Support Fund' (CSIF) programme provide grant support to community groups of 10-15 including women in a Ramsar Site for small scale enterprises (artisanal fishing, local 'kente' cloth weaving, marine turtle volunteer groups, women in 'kenkey' making, vegetable farming, etc.). The grant is repaid with no interest. However, beneficiary groups are mede to support habitat improvement activities (including, mangrove planting, woodlot establishment), and site protection activities (including, marine turtle protection, bird counting, etc).

The planning of national targets offers, for each of them, the possibility of indicating the national priority for that area of activity as well as the level of resourcing available, or that could be made available during the triennium, for its implementation. In addition, there are specific boxes to indicate the National T argets for implementation by 2018 and the planned national activities that are designed to deliver these targets. Ramsar Strategic Plan 2016-2024 shows the synergies between CBD Aichi Biodiversity T argets and Ramsar T argets. Therefore, the NRF provide an opportunity that Contracting Parties indicate as appropriate how the actions they undertake for the implementation of the Ramsar Convention contribute to achievement of the Aichi T argets according to paragraph 51 of Resolution XII.3.

› Slovakia adopted its National Adaptation Strategy – NAS ("The strategy of adaptation of the Slovak Republic to the adverse impacts of climate change") by Government Resolution No. 148/2014 in March 2014. The NAS examines the climate impacts and proposes adaptation options in a number of areas, such as: environment, biodiversity, built environment, public health, agriculture, forestry, water management and transport. Wetland issues and benefits from wetlands have been incorporated into chapters on biodiversity, water management and built environment. Priority actions are proposed and potential funding sources are identified. It also presents the proposed overall institutional framework for coordinating and implementing future adaptation actions, as well as a proposal for monitoring and evaluation arrangements.

› Environmental Impact Assessments are made for all development projects as decreed in the legislation. The authority in charge of granting the permit handles the matter and decides on the permit. If a project or plan is likely to have significant adverse effects on the ecological value of a site included in the Natura 2000 network (all Ramsar sites in Finland), an assessment of its impact needs to be conducted. The same applies to any project or plan outside the site which is liable to have a significantly harmful impact on the site (as decreed in the Nature Conservation Act of Finland).

In particular, the Ramsar Secretariat and STRP used the COP10 NRF indicators extensively in 2009 to prepare contributions to the in-depth review of the CBD programme of work on the biological diversity of inland water ecosystems for consideration by CBD SBSTTA14 and COP10 during 2010 (see UNEP/CBD/SBSTTA/14/3). Similar use of COP12 NRF indicators is anticipated for the CBD’s next such in-depth review.

› For example,under the Lake Chilwa Basin Climate Change Adaptation Programme (LCBCCAP), a five-year programme was jointly implemented by Leadership for Environment and Development Southern & Eastern Africa (LEAD SEA); World Fish Centre, and the Forestry Research Institute of Malawi (FRIM) in collaboration with Machinga, Phalombe and Zomba district councils, and University of Malawi, Chancellor College. The overall goal of the programme was to secure the livelihoods of 1.5 million people in the Lake Chilwa Basin and enhance resilience of the natural resource base. Specifically, the programme aimed to strengthen local and district institutions to manage natural resources sustainably and build resilience to climate change; facilitate and help build cross-basin and cross-sector natural resource management and planning for climate change throughout the Basin; improve household and enterprise adaptive capacity in Basin hotspots; and finally mitigate the effects of climate change through improved forest management and governance

› The public and the local population are involved in the processes of adoption of regulatory legal acts and projects of economic and other activities, as well as draft concepts, forecasts, programs and schemes of sectoral development, which realization is connected with biodiversity use, including conservation and use of wetlands through preparation and conduction of public discussions of projects of normative legal acts. Participation of local communities and local people in management of wetlands, including Ramsar sites, is ensured through public discussions of management plans for protected areas, including Ramsar sites. Knowledge and experience of local population are widely used and distributed through development of agro ecotourism in countryside. As of December 1, 2017, Belarus registered 2279 agro homesteads; 301.8 thousand tourists visited them in a year, which is 60.6% higher than in 2010. In 2016 there were more than 200 green routes in the country .

complex, including inter alia: pressures from building/agricultural encroachments; environmental impacts of livestock grazing/browsing; effects of illegal bird hunting; threats from inflows of pollutants; and effects of illegal fishing activities. The outputs under this component will be specifically directed towards: (i) the expansion and consolidation of the Gizil-Agaj State Nature Reserve, the Lesser Gizil-Agaj State Nature Sanctuary and other adjacent unprotected areas of high biodiversity (and/or strategic) significance into a single new national park; (ii) the preparation of an integrated management plan for the newly established national park; (iii) demarcation of the boundary of, and renovation/construction of access control

› Austrian Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020: With its agri-environmental measures and project- based nature conservation measures, compensation payments for disadvantaged areas and education and training measures, the programme is an important instrument for improving the environmental situation in the agricultural sector . With the exception of research projects, financial aid can be provided for almost all measures that are necessary for planning, implemeting and managing nature conservation projects. Particular emphasis is placed on the financial support of projects that have to do with sites that are protected under nature conservation laws (especially European protected sites, national parks, nature parks and other areas that are protected because of their ecological value).
