Title: Ramsar in Action: Studies on the International Wetlands
By Dr. Joel Heinen Professor Earth and Environment
Abstract The Ramsar Convention is the oldest of the multi-lateral conservation agreements, with 170 current Parties, yet in many ways it is considered 'soft law' in comparison to many other international legal instruments. Here I discuss the many provisions of Ramsar and its implementation via a number of case studies I've done over the years, and currently, with various colleagues and students in Nepal, Uganda and the Caribbean.
