Ramsar sites are wetlands of international importance designated under the Ramsar Convention. This dataset contains details for all broad wetland types for all designated Ramsar sites within the UK and its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies. The dataset lists human factors relevent to the site as identified on the Ramsar Information Sheet compiled for each site. The human factors are organised into the following categories Conservation measures taken Current land use & human activities Ecosystem services (though note that this is a new category only used for recent sites - ie the list is not comprehensive). Land tenure/ownership Social & cultural values There is also a record of whether the factor is major or minor and whether it operates within or outside of the site. Please note that these data have not been updated since the Ramsar Information Sheets were compiled in 1998 except in the case of designations subsequent to that date (circa 50 out of a total of 170 sites).
