Wetlands2014, the ninth European Wetlands Congress takes place in Aragon, north-east Spain in September. ALTER-Net partner, CSIC, is one of the organisers.

Subtitled Wetlands Biodiversity and Services: Tools for Socio-ecological Development, the international conference will cover key topics related to all types of wetlands, their ecology, management and applications. Particular emphasis will be given to topics dealing with wetland restoration and creation and the integration of wetlands with socio-ecological issues. These include: the benefits and services that wetlands contribute as part of the landscape, wetland restoration at landscape and watershed scale, the role of wetlands in ecotourism and rural development, valuing the natural resources of wetlands and using them to alleviate poverty, strategies and practical solutions for environmental conflicts related to wetlands, and the contribution of wetlands to global change mitigation

The event is promoted and supported by Society of Wetland Scientists European Chapter, European Pond Conservation Network, Comarca de Los Monegros, EU LIFE Programme, Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología-CSIC and the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
