The Austrian Wetland Strategy
The Austrian Federal Provinces and the Federal Ministry for Environment, Youth and Family
Austria’s obligations arising from the Ramsar Convention were to be shown in relation to measures and programmes. In doing so, the special situation of Austria with its federally structured nature conservation authority had to be taken into account. In a process of discussion and presentation, E.C.O. developed the concept for the “Austrian Wetland Strategy” and prepared it in a brochure directed at the interested novices. The Austrian Wetland Strategy was presented at the Ramsar conference 1999 in San Jose (Costa Rica).
