    Abstract

    Background
    The GWO, which is the Ramsar Convention’s flagship publication, reports on the status and trends of the world’s wetlands. The Contracting Parties requested the GWO in Ramsar Resolution XII.5, which called upon the Convention’s Scientific and Technical Review Panel (STRP) to update and expand upon Ramsar Briefing Note 7, State of the World’s Wetlands and their Services to People: A compilation of recent analyses. The Standing Committee subsequently identified this task as among the STRP’s highest priorities.
    Purpose
    The technical notes are complementary to the GWO, consisting of supplemental details and references. They also may provide technical information to explain the analysis or methodology supporting findings published in the GWO.
