The city of Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka and its economic, political, and cultural focal point. Since October 2018, it is also South Asia's only Wetland City under the Ramsar Convention.

On the border between land and sea, a unique ecosystem covers tropical and subtropical regions around the world: Mangrove forests. Mangroves are well adapted to saline water and the tides, and they thrive along the coastlines of over 118 countries, including Sri Lanka. They offer a wide variety of ecosystem services, provide a sheltered habitat for many species of animals, and are vital allies in the fight against climate change.
