  • Iraqi Marshlands: On the road to recovery
    The Iraqi Marshlands considered by some as the original biblical "Garden of Eden" and an ecosystem of global importance had been almost entirely destroyed by the time the former Iraqi regime collapsed in 2003. The UNEP project, "Support for Environmental Management of the Iraqi Marshlands", is helping the Iraqi people to restore the marshlands and manage them in a sustainable manner, as well as providing safe drinking water and sanitation systems to marshlands communities lacking access to these basic necessities.
  • Cloud Forests
    Tropical montane cloud forests are a rare type of evergreen mountain forest found in tropical areas where local climatic conditions cause cloud and mist to be regularly in contact with the forest vegetation. These forests support ecosystems of distinctive floristic and structural form and contain a disproportionately large number of the worlds endemic and threatened species.
