A wetland is an ecosystem that is flooded by water, either permanently or seasonally. Wetlands purify and store water, process carbon and other nutrients, stabilize shorelines, and support plants and animals. They are considered the most biologically diverse of all ecosystems.

According to a recent in-depth study, there are 2303 Wetlands of International Importance distribute unevenly on different continents. Europe owns the largest number of sites, while Africa has the largest area of sites. More than half of the sites are affected by three or four impact factors. The most significant impact factors are pollution, biological resources use, natural system modification, agriculture, and aquaculture.        

The protection and restoration of global wetlands can be carried out in five aspects, including management and policy, monitoring, restoration, knowledge, and funding.
