National strategies need to be established in order to develop measures for the sustainable exploitation of natural resources, particularly wetlands. The strategies for the protection of wetlands are based on preventing the reduction of wetland areas and by maintaining their ability to moderate the surrounding environment. The strategy also promotes the participation of local people, goverment officials, and other stakeholders. This paper provides an outline of the proposals for the strategies.
