    Although the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands is the primary multilateral intergovernmental environmental agreement (MEA) addressing inland and coastal wetlands, the scope and mandate of a number of other such MEAs also cover issues relevant to wetland conservation and wise use and the conservation of wetland-dependent species. Efforts are underway to establish ways and means of streamlining multiple conventions' implementation and enhancing synergies. The Ramsar Convention has established bilateral mechanisms for such inter-convention collaboration, which is most well established with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS). A number of mechanisms have also been established for coordination between the various bodies of the biodiversity cluster of conventions.
