This is the website of the Wetlands in Drylands Research Network, formed at an inaugural meeting in Parys, South Africa, in November 2014.

A report on the meeting is provided at:

Outputs from the Network so far include:
i) the Parys Declaration on the Importance of Wetlands in Drylands;
ii) a Science Brief produced as part of preparation for the United Nations Global Sustainable Development Report 2015;
iii) a brochure entitled 10 Reasons why the Geomorphology of Wetlands Is Important.

All these outputs are available under the ‘Downloads’  tab.  Over the next few months, we will be adding more content to this website to promote interest in the Network’s activities.
