PRESS RELEASE – World Wetlands Day –

World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on February 2nd, after the signing of the Ramsar Convention in 1971.

 

Since 1991, when Romania joined the Ramsar Convention, the structures of the environmental administration, the academic environment and the field of scientific research, as well as civil society and NGOs, have shown concern in the field of wetlands.

 

The Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests, as Programme Operator for the “Environment, Climate Change Adaptation and Ecosystems Programme’’ (RO – Environment), finances through the European Economic Area (EEA) Financial Mechanism 2014-2021, and also contributes to the implementation of the 2023 theme, ’’Reconstruction of wetlands’’, by integrating and managing the following projects in the field of wetlands:

  • Rehabilitation of wetlands and peatlands in the Center Region (RePeat) – Institute for Research and Development for Game Management and Mountain Resources (ICDCRM) Miercurea Ciuc;
  • Degraded mires and peatlands restoration of North-East 1 region of Romania (Peat RO2) – Institute of Biology – Romanian Academy- Bucharest
  • Degraded mires and peatlands of North-East 2 region of Romania (PeatRO3) – Institute of Biology – Romanian Academy- Bucharest
  • Restoration of wetlands and peatlands in the North-West Region (NWPEAT) – Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca
  • Degraded mires and peatlands restoration of North-West region of Romania (PEAT RO4) – Institute of Biology – Romanian Academy – Bucharest

 

The value allocated to these projects is 3,541,140 euros, respectively 17,527,646 lei.

Through the activities of the projects, we aim to conserve 44 peatlands totaling an area of approximately 11 km2.

 

The restoration of wetlands and peatlands was one of the priorities of the RO-Environment Programme, given that peatlands represent half of the world’s wetlands, and have a major role in long-term carbon storage and climate regulation.

 

By protecting and restoring these precious ecosystems, we contribute to mitigating the effects of climate change and conserving biodiversity.

 

We would like to invite you to access the following links to “take a walk” together in wetlands of great beauty, but also of great scientific importance:
