ECU Associate Professor Pierre Horwitz appointed to international panel

Thursday, 26 February 2009


The Convention on Wetlands, signed in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971, is an intergovernmental treaty which provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources. A total of 158 countries are signatories, including of course Australia who continue to acknowledge the intent of the treaty as one of its principal environmental obligations.

Associate Professor Pierre Horwitz has been appointed as Member of Ramsar's Scientific & Technical Review Panel (STRP) for the 2009-2012 cycle, as its Thematic expert member for Wetlands and human health for 2009-2012.

The Convention's mission is the conservation and wise use of all wetlands through local, regional and national actions and international cooperation, as a contribution towards achieving sustainable development throughout the world and we wish Pierre every success in his new post.
