Scope and content
Subsubseries consists of legal instruments relating to the International Conference on the Conservation of Wetlands and Watefowl held at Ramsar, Iran, 30 January – 3 February 1971, and the ensuing Convention. They are arranged roughly in chronological order (registered sequentially upon transfer to the Archives). Subsubseries A/398/C was started by the Archives to register instruments created after the 1982 Protocol, however the practice was stopped and the subsubseries was closed soon after the Conference of the Contracting Parties on 28 May 1987. Post-Protocol instruments can therefore be found in both subsubseries. The original Convention with signatures is in this subsubseries registered under code A/398/0.
