UNESCO has confirmed that the instrument of accession and accompanying Ramsar Site designations were received on 15 February 2013, so that the Convention will come into force for Swaziland on the 15th of June. The new Party has sent the required names and maps for its first three Ramsar Sites – Hawane Nature Reserve and Dam, Sand River, and Van Eck) – and the respective Ramsar Information Sheets are presently being prepared by the government, with details on the new sites to be available shortly. As of today, the Convention’s 165 Parties have designated a total of 2,101 Wetlands of International Importance.
