Our annual review and accounts assess how we have delivered on our mission, vision and strategic intent. We are pleased to present Wetlands International Annual Review and Accounts 2020, in the format of a digital magazine, The Source.
The Source brings to life our achievements, outcomes and progress, and spotlights those behind the work — from our network team around the world to our partners, donors and members. We hope it will provide inspiration and insight into the most challenging and exciting programmes around the world under our three “streams” of work or wetland landscapes: Coasts and Deltas, Rivers and Lakes, and Peatlands.
In the 2020 edition, you will find examples of how we have supported wetland communities through the Covid-19 pandemic by planning and developing along pathways that create resilience for both nature and those who depend on it. Despite the constraints, 2020 included many highlights and milestones, from the launch of the Global Mangrove Watch platform, to setting up a new wetland carbon programme and rejuvenating our global peatlands programme. We finalised our Strategic Intent 2020-2030, and launched our ongoing digital campaign #PowerofWetlands, engaging youth as a key audience. We agreed to innovative partnerships in the private sector and received a generous €1 million grant from the Dutch Postcode Lottery for 2018-2020, which supported many of the achievements featured in this annual review.
We invite you to download the annual review below, enjoy our stories, and share it with others to bring them on board. Lets champion our mission to inspire and mobilise society to safeguard and restore wetlands for people and nature!
