28 Sept - 1st Oct 2000, Odessa, Ukraine. Following the first workshop under this project held in the Po delta in January 1999, the final gathering of the 10 participating deltas will take place by the Black Sea in the autumn of 2000. The technical theme is currently being discussed between participants, in a bottom-up fashion. This meeting will also review the achievements of the bilateral exchange programme currently under way, and propose future directions to keep this network alive. Participation is under invitation only. This meeting will be twinned to another one organised between 25-27 September in Odessa, too, where the problems and threats for wetland and waterbird conservation for the region will be discussed. Together, these two meetings could potentially provide the forum to launch an initiative for the conservation of wetlands in the Black Sea region, as MedWet has been doing since 1993 in the Mediterranean. For further information please contact: Dr Christian Perennou, Project Leader, Station Biologique de la Tour du Valat, perennou@tour-du-valat.com or Dr.Igor Ivanenko, Wetlands International (Kiev office), at uawetl@carrier.kiev.ua.
