Dr. Maheshwar Dhakal, from DNPWC, Dr. Naresh Subedi from NTNC and Ms Sony Baral from IUCN were nominated as national delegates to the Conference of the Contracting Parties to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (COP 12) by the Government of Nepal. The delegates attended the Ramsar COP12 held at Punta del Este, Uruguay between 1 and 9 June, 2015. Progress sharing of Nepal's wetland restoration projects with other delegates together with briefing the progress to Ramsar Secretariat was also carried out. The exposure to the COP 12 was very important to Nepal for global networking on wetland conservation. The delegates had a greater exposure on how other countries across the globe are managing their wetlands. At the same time, Nepal selected as a Standing Committee Member for Ramsar for the first time to continue its strong commitment on wetland conservation and global cooperation.
