On 29 April 2003, at a meeting of the United Kingdom National Ramsar Committee in Peterborough, United Kingdom, the recently concluded Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) between JNCC (United Kingdom) and Wetlands International was officially launched. The MoA outlines the details of programme support from the United Kingdom through JNCC for a period of five years with a total budget of over GBP 250,000. This MoA supports three major programmes (International Waterbird Census, Specialist Groups activities within Wetlands International, and Global Waterbird Flyway Conference 2004) and two projects of Wetlands International (Regular update on phasing out of lead gunshot and Review of the European Status of Ruddy Duck) The meeting was well attended by representatives of government agencies and NGOs from all over the United Kingdom. Wetlands International's representative, Dr. Gerard C. Boere, presented a comprehensive overview of Wetlands International's present organisation and programme activities both on regional and global level. He expressed great appreciation on behalf of Wetlands International for the continued substantial support from the UK for the global activities. Futhermore he strongly called on other country members of Wetlands International to follow this example of long term programme support.
