The challenges facing us in declining wetland health

In the last 100 years we have lost around 60% of the world's known wetlands and more than 80% since the 1700s. Prof Max Finlayson reporting on the International River Symposium speaks on the challenges in moving beyond talk and into action in changing the way we manage our natural resources in an interview with Wandile Kallipa on Channel Africa Radio's Africa Midday show, Sept 21.
