CONSERVING FRESHWATER HABITATS – Freshwater

Important freshwater habitats in the country are the highland forests and wetlands (both forested wetlands and water bodies such as rivers and lakes.

Wetlands provide a range of natural ecological and hydrological functions therefore they have important roles in water supply, water purification and flood control.
