About the Web Portal
This portal is a dynamic knowledge repository for wetlands – one of the world's most productive ecosystems. The Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF&CC) has accorded high priority to conservation of these ecosystems, and this portal is an initiative to provide a single point access system that synthesizes information dissemination regarding wetland sites of the country, projects, initiatives and trainings. The portal provides a platform for the people of the country to learn more about wetlands and get involved in their conservation and management.
The Portal has been developed under the Indo-German project on "Wetlands Management for Biodiversity and Climate Protection" (2018-2023). The project is implemented in partnership with the MoEF&CC
by the Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). This project is part of the
International Climate Initiative (IKI). BMU supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
