adoption by the General Assembly on 30th August 2021.

The theme for the 2022 edition is Wetlands Action for People and Nature, and it highlights the importance of actions that ensure
that wetlands are conserved and sustainably used. It’s an appeal to invest financial, human and political capital to save the
world’s wetlands from disappearing and to restore those we have degraded.
