    The Ramsar Convention requires its Contracting Parties to designate sites
    as Wetlands of International Importance (or Ramsar Sites). In designating
    a wetland, a Contracting Party commits to maintain its ecological character. However, Ramsar Sites can face a variety of challenges, including developments in the agricultural, industrial, infrastructure, residential, tourism and recreation sectors; water management issues that affect water quality and quantity; invasive alien species and climate change.
    Ramsar Advisory Missions (RAMs) help Contracting Parties and Ramsar Site managers respond to threats to the ecological character of Ramsar Sites. This Briefing Note aims to enable Ramsar Site managers to better understand the RAM process and its use.
