Prepare a national wetland management guidance in close cooperation with the National RAMSAR Committee, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, Asity and the Organisation de Soutien pour le Développement Rural à Madagascar (OSDRM), drawing on lessons and experiences from a vast array of stakeholders. The guidance document will be widely communicated to wetland managers and policy makers, and tested at a minimum of three sites: Lake Kinkony, Lake Alaotra and Lake Sofia.

Strategic Direction: 2 Enable civil society to mainstream biodiversity and conservation into political and economic decision-making.
