Wetlands International Africa is part of Wetlands International, the leading global NGO working to safeguard and restore wetlands for people and nature. They bring critical knowledge on wetlands to the world’s attention and demonstrate solutions for sustainable development. Their focus is on some of the great wetlands, where the health of the natural water system matters the most. Their work helps conserve these special places for vulnerable wildlife and benefits millions of people. We build up long term programmes for a lasting impact on the ground.

Based in the Netherlands since 1996 and being a global network organisation working worldwide through 20 offices which share the name and brand “Wetlands International”, safeguard one reputation, implement a joint Strategic Intent and a common set of organisational guidelines and policies. The offices are legal entities with guidance and oversight from local boards. Through the CEO presence on the boards and a Global Network Partnership Agreement, they maintain coherence and manage risks. The Global Office provides global leadership and supports the office network. By connecting across the network, they keep their feet “in the mud” while influencing global policies and investments, and implementing projects in more than 100 countries.

Wetlands International moved to West Africa in 1998. Having started as a subregional organization focused in West Africa, it has evolved to a continental organization with a network of offices around Africa and a regional office based in Dakar, Senegal.
