his event will take place on Sunday, the 9th of December 2007, in Nusa Dua, Bali. Wetlands belong in the climate change debate, storing huge amounts of carbon in peat layers and mitigating the impact of extreme weather. Peatland loss is already leading to carbon dioxide emissions of a magnitude of 11% of all global fossil fuel emission. Wetland degradation amplifies the damage caused by extreme weather events.
Wetlands Day is a special event at the UN-FCCC COP that zooms in on wetlands & climate change.
