The GWEN network is an agora for scientists and study sites with the overall network aim to investigate, quantify and compare across different scales, and different hydroclimatic, wetland, and human disturbance and organization conditions:

a. The reciprocal interactions between wetlands, wetland networks and their hydrological catchments, in terms of water fluxes and waterborne spreading and loading of tracers, excess nutrients and pollutants.

b. The ecosystem services provided by natural and managed wetlands and wetland networks in different catchments.

c. The influence of (historic to future) hydroclimatic variability and change within the catchments on the wetland interactions in (a) and ecosystem services in (b).
