The four wetlands are seated in western Tibet's Ngari Prefecture, and they are the Mapham Yutso Wetland, Zhari Nanmucuo Wetland, Dong Co Lake, and Pangong Tso Lake.

The project will curb wetland degeneration, and bring the ecology functions of wetland into full play in water conservation, climate modulation, curbing soil erosion, and regulating water flow, etc.

Experts will be employed to make field investigation and research of the wetlands and present a plan in June.
