A Wetland Classification System
The NSW Wetlands MER program required a classification system which was broad enough to allow for reporting on wetland extent and condition across the state, yet also included enough detail to allow MER programs to be relevant at smaller (eg catchment and wetland) scales. The classification system is used to derive appropriate wetland types which depict the range of wetlands with similar functions and characteristics in the landscape and allow for the development of indicators and conceptual models on a state-wide and regional scale.

Kenya Wildlife Service

The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) conserves and manages Kenya’s wildlife for the Kenyan people and the world. It is a state corporation established by an Act of Parliament Cap 376 with the mandate to conserve and manage wildlife in Kenya, and to enforce related laws and regulations.

The challenges facing wildlife and biodiversity conservation in Kenya are many and varied. They include climate change, habitat degradation and loss, forest depletion, tourism market volatility, human wildlife conflict brought on by population growth and changing land use habits of communities that co-exist with wildlife as well as wildlife crime.

To tackle these issues, KWS employs a multi-pronged approach and strategies and engage different interest groups, stakeholders and partners.

KWS undertakes conservation and management of wildlife resources outside protected areas in collaboration with stakeholders. It is our goal to work with others to conserve, protect and sustainably manage wildlife resources. The community wildlife program of KWS in collaboration with others encourages biodiversity conservation by communities living on land essential to wildlife, such as wildlife corridors and dispersal lands outside parks and reserves. The premise is that "if people benefit from wildlife and other natural resources, then they will take care of these resources."
