This website will provide an opportunity to share information and experiences in wetland management in the region and beyond. It also provides up to date knowledge and skills needed in wetland management. In this regard a dedicated discussion platform has been established which will be accessed by registered users. Details will be provided through the Ramsar Administrative Authorities and designated national focal points.

I encourage you to regularly visit the website and also provide information to enrich the website. We welcome feedback and advice to enable us improve the website and wetland management in the region.

We are grateful to the Ramsar Convention Secretariat for the technical guidance and financial support which has enabled the establishment of RAMCEA. We are also indebted to the Government of Uganda in general and the Ministry of Water and Environment in particular for the excellent hosting arrangements afforded to RAMCEA. We wish you enjoyable reading as we launch and prepare to upload an improved version of our website- RAMCEA SECRETARIAT .
