Themes and indicators

Four main themes have been defined by the Observatory partners:

Collectively, these themes cover the state of wetlands, the drivers and pressures that affect them, the resulting impacts on human well-being, as well as the responses developed by Mediterranean societies in order to reduce them.

In a first stage, 25 indicators have been selected to cover these four themes, 17 of which are either measured or under development to date. In the future, more indicators may be added.
