NBCBN in 5th Cairo Water Week CWW 2022

The steady and ongoing decline of wetland extent and quality of wetlands ecosystems in the Nile basin will lead to a further net decrease of overall value, unless managed with greater focus taking into account total economic value that includes measurements of direct use, indirect-use and non-use. The economically integrated ecosystem approach will ensure the support for better livelihoods of communities living in wetlands ecosystems through different economic and social management strategies of the different services and introducing social support programmes for better income generation for families living on wetlands. Therefore, this session will focus on Wetlands Eco-Systems economic valuation and creating better livelihoods through wetlands wise use-wise gain.
