Since its establishment in 1997, the Wetlands International-Russia Programme Office has been implementing a long running national wetland inventory programme.
A wetland inventory provides information on the location, type, condition, functions and values of the wetland resources. This information helps to set priorities for wetland conservation and provides the basis for policy decisions and management actions.
Six reports have been published, although they are unfortunately no longer available in print. PDF files of volumes 2 to 6 can be found on the webpages of Wetlands International.
