    The Standing Committee of the Convention on Wetlands approved the themes for World Wetlands Day as follows: Wetlands and Climate Change, theme for 2019. Wetlands and Biodiversity, theme for 2020. Wetlands and Water, theme for 2021.

    The 2021 campaign highlights the contribution of wetlands to the quantity and quality of freshwater on our planet. Water and wetlands are connected in an inseparable co-existence that is vital to life, our wellbeing and the health of our planet.
