Author Commentary 9

Ramsar Resolution VIII.6, 16, Ramsar Resolution VII.20, 11, Ramsar Recommendation 4.4 , Ramsar Recommendation 4.6, Ramsar Recommendation 2.3, Annex, 1.1 and Ramsar Recommendation 1.5 build on each other, with the latest version in Ramsar Resolution VIII.6., 16 being the most comprehensive one. It stresses that the compilation of national wetland inventories should be a high priority and that the Framework for Wetland Inventory should be used for the compilation of the inventories. Ramsar Strategic Plan 2003-2008, Operational Objective 1.1 is accompanied by Action 1.1.2, which outlines the type of information that national wetland inventories should include. World Heritage Convention Article 11, 1 could be complementary to all those Ramsar Resolutions and vice versa.
