On 1 November 1999 the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Waterbirds (AEWA) entered into force. Currently 20 Range States have signed and ratified the AEWA. In the last few days Finland, Belgium and South Africa have signed and/or ratified the AEWA. The Interim Secretariat is aware that other countries have already started the process (beginning some time ago) and will become Parties in the near future. From 6-9 November 1999 the First Session of the Meeting of the Parties will take place in Cape Town, South Africa. The agenda, including most of the meeting documents, is available on the website www.wcmc.org.uk/AEWA in French and English. In particular, the report on Conservation Status and the Conservation Guidelines are recommended for reading.
