The Ramsar Convention Secretariat invites you to join a training webinar on the Ramsar Sites Information Service (RSIS) for Ramsar National Focal Points and registered Ramsar Site compilers. The webinar is intended to help you designate and update Ramsar Sites by showing the different aspects of the system in action.




After a short presentation of the RSIS and an overview of the public part, the presentation will guide you through the back end of the system by broadcasting live the view of a user working with the system. The following points will be covered:

  1. How to create a new Ramsar Site or launch an update
  2. Explanation of the different parts and functionalities of your dashboard
  3. How to navigate through the RIS online form
  4. Details about the site location and GIS
  5. How to complete data for criteria and their justification
  6. How to submit an RIS to the Secretariat and respond to comments
  7. How to use the RIS offline form

During the webinar you will be able to ask questions in writing; some of these will be answered throughout the session and the rest will be followed up by email.




Click on the registration link above for the Webinar in the language of your choice. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. All registrants will receive a link to the recording – so please register even if you cannot attend the live event.
