La Rochelle, France - At the 5th session of the Meeting of the Parties to the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement (14-18 May in La Rochelle, France), the Contracting Parties adopted 27 resolutions of which one third of all resolutions have included relevance to the Critical Site Network Tool, to the Flyway Training Kit or in general to the Wings Over Wetlands Project. All these products were produced under Wetlands International’s leadership and set a solid base for migratory waterbird conservation in the region.
We had well attended side events to introduce the Wings Over Wetlands and the Waterbird Monitoring Partnerships. In addition, Wetlands International’s staff Abdoulaye N’Diaye has chaired the side event on the Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative. Wetlands International’s staff, Szabolcs Nagy, and associate expert, Tim Dodman, have given five plenary presentations including key agenda points such as the Conservation Status Report, the Site Protection Report, Plan of Action for Africa. A new publication on the Critical Site Network Tool was also launched (see right).
