Iran’s Department of Environment has presented an environmental proposal to the UN Adaptation Fund to enlist the global body’s cooperation and financial support for a bid to revive the imperiled Bakhtegan wetland in southwestern Fars Province.
The Adaptation Fund, according to its website, finances the initiatives undertaken by developing countries to adapt to climate change.
“Preserving the Bakhtegan wetland has always been at the center of the DOE’s attention. For that matter, in addition to sending the proposal to the AF, we have hired an advisor on international, national and local affairs,” Abolfazl Abasht, director of the Conservation of Iranian Wetlands Project, said in an interview with IRNA on Tuesday.
