"Healthy wetlands, healthy people" is the theme agreed for the Ramsar Convention Conference of the Parties to be held in November 2008. There are strong linkages between effectively functioning wetland ecosystems and human health, and there is an important role for international governance mechanisms to promote both ecosystem functioning and resilience, and thus enhance human well-being. The role of the scientific community in determining an appropriate research agenda is key to effective governance and management of wetland ecosystems world-wide.
