Azerbaijan to create first MPA in the Caspian Sea

The Gizilaghaj State Reserve is being expanded and upgraded to become a National Park and will include the first Marine Protected Area (MPA) in the Caspian Sea, the largest inland body of water on the planet.

The State Reserve was created in 1929 for the purpose of protecting migrant, swamp and wild birds, and was declared a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands in 2001.

Securing Indo-Burma's wetlands and communities

Wetlands, such as marshes, rivers, mangroves and coral reefs, have many important functions. They support fisheries, provide clean water, store carbon and reduce disaster risk by acting as natural buffers against erosion and the impact of floods, tsunamis and landslides. In the Indo-Burma region, millions of people rely on wetlands for their survival. The Lower Mekong delta supports the world's most productive inland fisheries and provides local communities with up to 80% of their protein intake. Read more
