Wetlands, if sustainably managed for agricultural and conservation purposes, can significantly contribute to ensuring food security. Cases in sustainable agriculture are shared, with key recommendations highlighted:


• Promotion of the sustainable coexistence of agriculture and wetlands; 

• Use of interventions available to rebalance economic development and ecosystem health of wetlands through participatory processes and the formulation of incentives; and 

• Taking integrated resources management into account through adaptive and ecosystem approaches, in particular, in the context of dynamic drivers of socioeconomic and climate change.
