The 'Wetlands: Understanding the Wealth of Humankind' virtual seminar is organised by Centre for Water Informatics and Technology (WIT) as part of its ongoing Aab Beeti series.
In this discussion, we will take a look at wetlands not only in India but also in Pakistan, the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (one of the earliest international environmental agreement in the post World War times) and will also subsequently focus on the East Kolkata Wetlands. We shall understand and explore the uniqueness of these wetlands and speak a little about the work the speaker does through the institutions she is connected with.
