World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on 2 February to mark the date on which the Convention on Wetlands was adopted in 1971.
UNU-IAS, Wetlands International Japan, and the Global Environment Outreach Centre will co-organise a webinar to observe World Wetlands Day 2021 on 2 February from 18:00–20:00 JST.
